Default CL for me.

+1 for Craigslist here. You have to search daily, but they show up. In my area they are 50 bucks each. You might have better luck talking folks down, I don't try. If I can pay what they're asking, I pay it. 50 each is a LOT cheaper than 40+40 shipping off of eBay.

Now I just need to find a mini-fridge to convert to a kegerator. Sanyo 4910-12's are not as easy to find anymore

Kegconnection.com was running a free shipping Halloween special for anything over $31 with the code HW2012, and had used pin locks for $35. Might still have the free shipping, keg price is still good.

Adventures in Homebrewing has a great deal now. 4 kegs for $150 bucks. I just bought 8 to keep the shipping costs down. They are in good shape and the price is right.

According to that link the sale has already ended. That was a quick 10,000 kegs they went through!

Aboo,

I don't know which eBay seller you're referring to, but I got mine from this guy.

(link)


It was a few months ago, but I bought 6 for about $200 shipped. At that time, he had two prices, $28 and $38. Of course the $38 were better looking. I just went with the cheapest. I don't care if there are a couple of dents here and there as I'm more worried about them holding pressure than how they look.

That is the eBay seller I was talking about. I'm in Missouri, and only wanted two kegs. Shipping was 40 dollars, for one. So I passed. I did not however call him or anything so it's highly possible that he'd be able to do something for you cheaper than that.

I'm sure a good portion of those went to their two retail locations. The half hour I spent in the store on Saturday saw quite a few bundled kegs being sold.

With both of those you'll need to contact the seller for a shipping quote.

B3's $60 (including shipping), are also back in stock...

The shipping ($70) kills this deal for me.

Cheers

Check kegconnection.com, price was still $35 the other day. Even if the HW2012 offer for free shipping has expired (don't know), they still have $7.95 flat rate shipping.
