    If you were bargaining with someone, you might say something like that...

    Customer: "How much is that rug?"

    Shopkeeper: "It is $15"

    Customer: "Oh, that's a bit too much, will you take $7?"

    Shopkeeper: "I will give it to you FOR $10"
    I'm not a teacher, so please consider any advice I give in that context.

    You would only use 'at' when the price is constantly changing. For example, if you were buying shares in a company, you could say you bought them 'at ten dollars'.
