The one you purchase from Amazon says if you have two original keys  they will include instructions on how to program both new keys.

I have heard of people finding fobs on ebay and finding someone to program them, but we typically advise customers to go to the dealer - and $300+ seems typical....

Have a friend with a similar issue on a 2011 Chrysler.  I found two replacement keys on Amazon for $15 and a local locksmith will program them for $75.
