Cost for Exporting CloudWatch Logs to Splunk

I'm trying to figure out some rough costs for my setup before moving forward. 

 

I'd like to export logs from CloudWatch into Splunk Cloud, and came across this post:
https://www.splunk.com/en_us/blog/tips-and-tricks/how-to-easily-stream-aws-cloudwatch-logs-to-splunk...

 

What I wanted to know is that when I'm "streaming" logs to Splunk Cloud from CloudWatch, do I still end up having to pay CloudWatch for the volume of logs ingested? Or is there a way to stream to Splunk Cloud and bypass the need to store/ingest in the CloudWatch backend so that I only have to pay the cost for logs ingested in Splunk Cloud?
