I only ever buy plants when they are on offer, couldn't afford otherwise. The postage has to be cheap, or free over a certain amount.
My best bargains were from J.Parker, an Acer, Strawberry Deuztia, and an alamanchia, all 1.99 each and after four years are all over 6' tall.
I don't have a garden centre very close, but will occasionally buy from Wyvale, or Pine Lodge, both in Cornwall, they have a good bargain range, then it has to be something big enough to split.
