Here is the beginning of an e-mail message I've just received:

This is the last chance at getting the coaching membership at this price.

My question is the following:

Why is it "last chance at getting" and not "last chance of getting"?

Thank you.

Hello teal lime,

As far I know, both are okay. "the last chance at getting..." is less common than "the last chance of getting...". Please look at the link below:
