If you go in person to buy your square, you can check it in the store using a pencil and the flat edge of a shelf. Just keep trying different ones until you get one that works. Also, combination squares can be trued up with a piece of sandpaper:
I have and like one of the PEC combination squares but if you re willing to fiddle you can tune up a cheaper one.

Indeed, it’s not hard to true a cheap square (assuming the blade is straight). But, beware of the Aluminum ones – they won’t stay true long because of the wear between the head and the blade.
