Good luck finding someone to do it for less.  That was a rock bottom price.  Here is a suggestion.  Attach your slide to a sheet of white A4.  Light it brightly from behind.  Make sure there are no reflections or shadows on the front. Take a photo on your phone. Use your phone's photo editing tools.  You won't be able to get rid of scratches and dustspots and the texture of the paper might show through, but you can convert to greyscale or sepia and enlarge it yourself.
