For trad I often will use these because they're cheap but I don't use them for sport because they're not as quick to remove as their name implies... ww.e-rigging.com/three-eighths-inch-Quick-Link?gclid=CJ7gp8rF59ICFcq2wAodsnQFDQ

Don't buy a biner to be used solely for bailing. Climb a little longer and you will either start to acquire biners that others have left on sport routes when they bailed or you will have older biners of your own that you don't like very much, have sticky gates, or just don't get used as much because you have newer/better biners now. If you have to leave a biner before that point then I guess you're out a few bucks, but probably no more than you would have been if you bought a cheap biner that stayed on your harness for the sole purpose of bailing.

I could not agree more, for my crew it is seen as one of the greatest sins to leave a bail biner. You collect them as you progress in your grades. That being said if you are insistent on buying some I have a couple hundred, you tell me how many you want!

this sounds a whole lot more fun than spending money.
