cost to program a key

I was given two keys to my ZX3 when I bought it. Last winter, I lost my key ring in the snow with one of my car keys on it. So, I purchased a transponder key on the internet for $25. I took it to an Ace Hardware to have it cut and programmed. They cut the key but realized they couldn't program it because it wasn't an I-key and all they do are I, A, and P keys. I called one dealer in town and asked how much it would be just to program the key I got on the internet. They said $45. That is steep to me. Is this reasonable to you? I would like to know how I can get them to come down from that price. Any ideas?
