Can always make a WTB thread in the marketplace when you have enough rep.

I know 75ish seems like a lot, I thought the same when I was going to buy mine at 85 bucks...for a keyboard, but you aren't just paying for mechanical keys, you're paying for build quality too. The cheapest one you can get is the compact CM rapid, and just picking this thing up it feels like a tank and drools quality build.

I bought a Logitech K310 a while ago and found it to be very good for typing related tasks and even quite good for gaming. The keys can feel a little hard initially but once broken in it feels great for the price and type. It's nice that the keyboard is spill resistant for those hours of typing and having an open lid drink by your side.

I'm also a fan of the Logitech Illuminated and the simple/ cheap MS Comfort Curve 2000. That said I too would rather be doing most of my typing on my mechanical keyboard or MS Sidewinder (but it's very gaming oriented so...)

It's expensive to invest a lot into a switch before actually trying out the mechanical regardless that the quality tends to be leaps and bounds ahead of most standard rubber domes. It's best to actually try the keyboard out at a local shop before you actually pick one up and that tends to be rather difficult with a mechanical keyboard as they tend to not have many on display at most local places. So it's rather hard to suggest a keyboard that you'll spend a great deal on just to think, wow, I just wasted quite a bit of money on something that is annoying as heck to type on.

The comfort curve 2000 was my favorite for a long time until I started wasting money into mechanical keyboards.
