This is why it's important to have a shop that will go to bat for you. If they call the manufacturer or their supplier and call in a favor, odds are they can get one sent out free. Suppliers always have some spares they cannibalize from defective or returned product, so it's just a matter of someone taking the time.
As to how to have a shop willing to go to bat for you, that's something else entirely.
