I've been scouting my local craigslist for months now without seeing anything come up for awhile.

ebay has a variety of options, best I've seen shipped is a pair for $48 each.

This listing:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Kegco-KEG-5G...item1e7794ed38

Comes up to $85.14 shipped per keg for a brand new one.

Not sure if I want to bite the bullet there, but for $35 more per keg, it could be worth it to get new.

I've been watching out for some kegs too, seems all the good deals have gone the way of the dinosaurs. For ball locks anyway.

Even for pin locks on ebay they are at $41 each. I haven't looked at latest prices, but to convert them is more than the difference with the ball lock kegs.

There was a guy on my local craigslist back in Dec that had em cleaned, new orings etc for $35. Now he's at $55, 2 months later. Go figure.

The best I could find was from a wholesaler and that was about $45 per keg for ball locks with freight from FL to MN. That quote was based on pallet qtys of 60 though too.

Sometimes you find good deals. I got a BOGO deal at Midwest over the holidays. Used ball locks were $50, so $25 each (limit 2). But you had to spend $100 in the store to get the deal, which I was going to do anyway.

But in general they are very hard to find for good deals anymore. I have 4 and need 6 or 7 long term.

Inflation sucks. I have bought all of my kegs for less than $30 each. 1 from a buddy. 2 from CL, and 3 on Black Friday from KegConnection. SWMBO doesn't know about them but I considered $28 each an investment that I couldn't afford to let go. Based on my viewings of freezers, keg shells, and CO2 on Craigslist over the past 5 months, Homebrewing seems to be causing a stir and much demand.

My suggestion is: If you find a good deal, take it as far as you can go. Those 3 i scored on Black Friday are increasing in value more than my 401k right now.
