There's lots of OpenSRS resellers (some even on this list) with 
varying prices and great customer service.

However, one thing to keep in mind is : When is your domain scheduled 
to expire? If it's "real soon now", you're probably boned and have to 
pay the $35.00/year (not 70) Verisign fee, because you won't be able 
to complete a registrar-transfer quickly enough.
