Since you're a beginner fish keeper, I wouldn't recommend spending $70 on a fish that will most likely not have a very long life. Then your $70 will have been for nothing.

Try starting out with a fish from Petco or Walmart or some other local pet store where the fish is under $10.

Unless you are planning on breeding there's really no reason why you can't get a fish from a pet store. Most people who get fish off aquabid are investing in breeding stock. Unless you just really want a well bred pet which is fine as long as you have the money and are willing to accept the risk involved with buying a fish and shipping it.

If you're worried about price, you might consider looking at your local Petsmart/Petco/Walmart or mom-and-pop Petstores first. Sometimes they have Halfmoons.

Petco also has Halfmoon Bettas avaliable on their website. $11 for the Betta and overnight shipping might total to be a little cheaper, around $40 or so.

Another option would be locating a breeder on Aquabid that relatively near your area, to avoid the cost of a transhipper.

Try calling some local pet stores first and see if they have any Halfmoons- You might be in luck!

The Petco I live close to always has halfmoons. So you should be able to find one soon.

Call Petco until they either tell you when they're getting them or that they have them in-stock.

If you want a nice halfmoon without spending 80 or more, but from breeders in the U.S. bettysplendens.com has great halfmoons for good prices. You can get a really nice halfmoon from here for 5 dollars more than nasty petco... Plus with bettysplendens.com If you see a fish you like but dont have all the money, You can place the fish on hold for 5 dollars then a week later pay it off..
