If you have been in country for 2 months, yes.

I came in on the waiver, the first extension was 30 days because they wouldn't allow me to do 2 months. As my ACR-I card was about to expire, they charged me for a new one.

I think the rule is if you are going to be in the country more than 90 days, you get charged for an ACR-I card, even if you won't be around to pick it up.

Yes, agreed on that I was just thinking about how much to get out of the hole in the wall before I go there.

The card itself is P500 a couple of months ago plus normal fees and 1000 for express lane just for ARC so take at least P2000 more

That's a pretty cheap conversion rate:
