Without adding anything to the original question - I disagree with the 
statement that this is a rip-off.
Business offering a service - nothing untoward with that.

Having a quick look - there are some single eeproms from under $20. $60 
may get you a four chip set - all seems to depend on the number of chips 
and possibly the particular chip variety.

If you can do it yourself (or have a suitable friend) then, sure, you 
may be able to do it cheaper - though it'll take you some time, so 
depends how you value your time.
Personally, I may sometime need an eeprom for a lexicon rack and, while 
I'm somewhat tempted to invest the time & money on getting myself to a 
point where I can DImYself, the asking price does not strike me as 
unreasonable.

Sorry for the blah blah..
