Are bees bought from local bee clubs cheaper than those from other sellers?

I found a place selling nucs for $180 each. This is cheaper than most other places I've seen online. I had previously contacted my local beekeeping organization about bee availability and they said they sell nucs and packages but advised me not to buy until bee school starts (I enrolled in their class). They didn't say how much they cost and I probably won't get to see the order form until the class starts in a few weeks.

If it's more expensive or they're out of stock then that would kind of suck (especially since other vendors may be out of stock by that time as well), but I read that bees sold by local beekeeping organizations are cheaper because of bulk orders by many beekeepers. Has this been your experience?
