Looking into it I think I need a jointer right more than the planer, any hidden jems i should now about? are bench models ok? Do I need to drop a lot on one?

IMO, you should go ahead with the planer purchase and then build a good sled for it. With the planer, sled, and a well tuned table saw, you can flatten, thickness, and square up the edges of rough sawn boards up to the width of the planer. A jointer will be a nice addition for later, but with the planer and sled, you may decide you don’t need a super wide one.
