Look through the list of hosting providers here to see which one will sell you the domain name for the cheapest.

http://www.namecheap.com have always been good for me. But if it's an unusual extension you'll always pay a lot more than .com, .net and .org.

i know that a .com can be alot, but i want a .me and godaddy wants to charge $20-$25 and i think that is a rip off and that is without the hosting

I personally prefer namecheap and godaddy.

I'm using both (long story), but leaning towards the latter because of better deal (cheaper price) especially with discount coupons

I know you can get .coms for 7.50 anytime at Godaddy using codes from DealTaker. But I don't see anything about .me, sorry.

No, you're confused. .com, .net and .org are the cheap domains. The others are the ones that can become expensive. Particularly some of the newer ones. If you want a .me domain, you're going to have to pay that for it.
