Default where to get yeast without $7-8 shipping added?

Just need some yeast, and no LHBS within 100mi or so. Is there anywhere online that sells yeast without having to pay the $7-8 shipping charge? That'd make dry yeast around $10 and whitelabs around $14!

You can create a yeast starter with the last ounce of a 22oz bottle-conditioned commercial beer like one from Rogue, Stone, or Sierra Nevada. Not only do you get a good yeast strain, but you get to drink the beer and keep the bottle.

You can get some dry ale yeast on EBay for about $4 including shipping.

cant really help with the OP but i can make a few suggestions.

you can grow your own yeast. pick a few of your favorites and order them online. also in the same order order a several pounds of DME. make separate starters for each of the yeast. set some aside from each batch and do the process again. keep doing this till you have more than enough yeast for your needs. when you get low grow some more.

Call around and see if a homebrew shop will put a pack of yeast in an envelope for you and drop it in the mail. Should cost $0.44 + the cost of the envelope.

RebelBrewer has $2.99 Super Saver Shipping if you're just getting something small like yeast.
