not because but because I want to express the idea like "not because A but because B" It's an exampale: I'm not going there not because it's expensive but because of the date. I think two "because" might make the sentence tedious. And I'm not sure how the native speaker express the idea such like this.

Having two "because" is totally fine! I am not a native speaker, but I heard so many times native speakers saying that. :)

So does the sentence sound right? Thx

No, the two "becauses" is fine. That is how a native would say it.
