Car: '93 90S fwd

My grand total came to $760 and some change, included:
water pump w/gasket
timing belt
timing belt tensioners (2)
thermostat w/gasket
serpentine belt tensioner [serp belt was fine]
labor, taxes, shop fees, coolant

I can't see how adding a serpentine belt would create a $40 difference.
