Hey 3D, i was thinking about perhaps purchasing an off brand grip, but was reminded of a bad previous experience with one that drained my batteries, wouldn't recognize the grip until i finally said, when it comes to grips and the like, canon all the way.
I hear you cost is a factor and seeing as the 6D is relatively new, no one is really selling the grip on the used market just yet. However I did find a deal from a site called Unique Photo for 30 bucks cheaper than b& H and adorama. I am not sure of the rules here about posting outside links, but if you google unique photo you can pick up a grip for 220 with no tax & free shipping (unless u are in jersey)
Hope this helps

Quick question before I go digging through this thread... Anybody found a good aftermarket battery and grip for the 6D? I currently have a Meike grip and Phottix batteries for my 60D and had little trouble. One of the two Phottix batteries I have had for quite a while has just died and won't recognize at all anymore so I thought I'd ask what you guys are using. My $50 Meike grip on the 60D has held up very well, might stick with that brand for the 6D as well.
