I had thought that at one point the IPv6 allocation was free for ISPs, but that deal expired at one point and it was now up to us to pay for both allocations. I'm not complaining, just seeking clarification since we're talking about getting IPv6 eligibility, costs, etc.

No. If you have IPv4 space already, it is incredibly easy to get IPv6. Getting the default /48 as an end-user is about as automatic as it could be, and qualifying for more is not much more effort if you have multiple sites. 

The only issue is that for end-users, you now have to pay an additional $100 per year for the IPv6 assignment.
