I'd like to get some VFFs at a more pocket friendly price
I found cheap ones at discountvibramfivefingers.com but it looks very flybynight and foreign, it apparently opened in may so I don't know if anyone knows anything I'm very leery and it looks TOO good to be true
Gah, be VERY VERY careful where you get your VFFs from. Most of those "discount" places are NOT legit.
VFFs are rare enough now that you simply will not get them cheaper from a store. Perhaps try some gear swapping sites or your local craigslist.
One option is that if you open a charge card through Eastern Mountain Sports, you get a percentage off of your first purchase of $100 or more. Given that a pair of Vibram KSO's run about $80 or so, couple that with something around $20 and you'd get them at a discount.
I have also had a terrific experience with REI when sizing didn't work quite as I thought when buying VFFs as a gift. Kudos for sure! I agree that they are in high demand. They couldn't keep enough on their shelves in the Portland REI store, so I had to order them online.
I bought my first pair of VFF's used on eBay. They were listed as lightly used, and didn't have much wear. I got them about $30 less than MSRP price. I had followed the measurement procedure on VFF's website and I got a good match (although I have a longer second toe).
I was little concerned about how much I would like them, and didn't want to put the full investment in. I've only had them a few weeks but I enjoy them.
After reading the link about counterfeit Vibrams, I will probably buy my next pair either directly from VFF's site or from a running shop nearby that sells them.
you should read up on the longevity of the shoes, since they don't have cushioning and foam lining they last a lot longer than an ordinary pair of tennis shoes, for $70, they are a better buy than tennis shoes simply for their longevity. I have owned the same pair for about seven months, I do not wear anything else, I bow hunt in them, run in them, hike in them, etc, and they show no signs of wear yet, they are by far worth the money you will pay, also if you follow vibram's sizing chart you shouldn't have any trouble, I have four other friends with them and we all nailed our size the first try
For the durability issue, I got my first pair 5/06 and ran/walked/hiked in them for about a year before I wore a hole in the sole under my 4th metatarsal head. pair #2 is about 2 months from the same issue and I've had them 2 years. They last, keep your body happy. and are worth the $80ish FWIW.

I just got my Five Fingers Classic’s and they are great. After years of trying various shoes, boots, orthotics, socks, etc., and never being quite happy with the way my feet feel, I tried the Vibram Classic. What a difference! ALSO, the price is reasonable, i paid $ 69 for one pairs.
Consider carefully about the size; I wound up having to go down 2 sizes from what the chart said I would need (they use European sizes, so I went from a 39 to a 37), and after so long time of use I think I might have been happier going down one more. So if you order them by mail, be sure that you can be introduced for a size chart.
