I've been searching around and looking for sales etc but prices seem to vary and I'm honestly not sure what would be a "good price" for perlick faucet + shank. Don't necessarily need stainless, chrome is fine. What have you guys gotten them for?

Well that's the best I've seen, thanks! Do you need Perlick shank as well or will off brands work just as well?

Off brands are fine. I bought the chrome shanks/tailpiece combo form them too. It seemed to be the easiest way to go.

I think that they knock $10 off of the shipping if you buy $100 worth of stuff. My shipping was about $6

If you want to go stainless I recommend Stainlessbrewing.com. I've got all my stuff from him. Actually ordered a couple perlicks the other day, shipped same day. Great guy to deal with.

I would be wary of $18 Perlicks, there are knock offs out there that do not work as well, and $18 is insanely cheap.

Look for faucet combo kits. Typically they're the same price as all the parts combined, so it's mainly a convenience factor. Includes shank, tap handle, faucet, mounting nut, etc. Everything needed to hook up a beer line and go. a good SS Perlick (525SS) faucet combo typically goes for about $45 each.

$18 does seem a bit sketch. The faucet itself usually goes for around $30-$35. I'd be wary of $18 "Perlicks"

I think CGVT was referring to chrome Perlicks, not SS. SS cannot be had for $18. Chrome, maybe.

Yeah I looked at some other companies and the chrome faucets are usually 21ish. 18 doesn't seem so far out of the realm of possibility.
