That's pretty much the going rate for a brand new battery (regardless of the vendor). You may be able to score a slightly better deal from Amazon, but beware some of them are refurbs. iFixit has new batteries for $99 and a-stock batteries for $89.

I've read that the "high capacity" third-party batteries last no longer than Apple's. Just buy the original battery.
