As it stands, the C-Store is the cheaper option, but not everybody (myself included) has the option to work more hours to get the extra spending money. Both $15 and 500 Emblems are outside of my budget, but $3 or whatever the equivalent amount of time/emblems is not.
So philosophising about the economics of time aside; No, you don't have to pay any real world money to get it, gotcha.
