    I did pay quite a sum of money.

    How to say the product is not really cheap?

    Can I say:
    "I did pay quite a bit"
    "I did pay quite a bit of money"
    "I did pay quite some money"


    Any better suggestions? Thanks

    The first two are OK. The third is not natural.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
