Petflytrap is an excellent place to get several easy Nepenthes, and they probably have more if you ask, if you live in the US.

Send me your address and I'll send a small N. x coccinea cutting. Please tell me if you have grown Neps before; this is an easy one, but still needs the basic care for Neps.

I don't know if I should say this on this forum or not. If the answer's no I'll be hearing from a mod.
The best place to get a nepenthe cheap is Lowes. You can get one for under $3. I bought two and the are very fast growers and seem to be strong easy plants to grow. I don't know for sure what kind they are yet, I'm sure that they're a hybrid. Since you're new It's always good to get a plant as cheap as you can, incase you kill it. It's better to learn from your mistakes with a $3 plant intsead of a $15 or $20 plant. If you don't have a Lowes near you or your Lowes don't sell cp's let me know and I'll send you one.
Another good place to look for cheap cp's, including nepenthes, are greenhouses. I went to a greenhouse last Friday. I asked if they had any carnivourous plants. The women told me that they had some but they sold all of them but one pitcher plant. I asked what kind of pitcher plant it was and she said she didn't know. She took me to it and guess what. It was a medium sized nepenthes! The price was $4.95, It looked very stressed so I asked if I could get a discount. She said she'd take $2 for.

Of course I bought it. I don't know what kind it is yet. It don't have pitchers but it has some buds. The leaves looks just like a N.bical.
Look at your local greenhouses, you never know what you'll find.
