Key FOB upgrade cut new emergency key?

Anyone that has done this where you able to get the new emergency key cut to match your old one? I didnít even think about this before doing it so now my new FOB has a blank emergency key which is useless unless I can get cut to match my old one.

take your old emergency key and the new one to a local lock smith and they should be able to cut it. Should be easy for them.

The ace hardware near me does it for $35. I'm sure you can find it less than that. Heck, i'd even try home depot. They never do anything with a chip, but cutting the emergency key is pretty simple.

I have an Ace right by me so will check with them. I don't know why I thought it would be anything difficult but all but 1 locksmith said they couldn't do it.

EDIT: @aa2033 swapped my old FOB for the new and highly recommend him. Great service, great price and super easy to work with but had no idea this was him.
