Default Kegerator at Sam's Club

I went by my local Sams Club this morning and they are discontinuing the sell of the Danby kegerator. I picked one up for $300. I don't know if every Sams is getting rid of them but you might want to check it out.

Now all I need is a few corni kegs.

That's a pretty nice deal. How large are they and how many taps are on the tower? Does it come with a CO2 tank and regs?

considering that it's designed for 1 large commercial keg ( I think), you'll have to add another tap to the tower if you want a dual tap tower, and switch out the disconnects, get new ones that aren't sankey style for the CO2 and get yourself a regulator. Not a bad deal though!

It only has one tap and it did come with a co2 tank. It will hold up to the regular 1/2 barrel kegs, so I think 2-3 corni kegs will fit inside.

300 buck ain't bad. I'm the OP in the link above and mine is going strong after a few tweaks. Some have found simpler and cheaper fixes and from what I gather, the later Danby's don't have as many problems as the earlier ones.
