It seems to work on all Filson bags (and maybe all bags in general) on Newegg.com. I just bought a Filson large zippered tote in Tan (normally $135) for about $108, which is amazing considering the non-zippered tote sells at normal price for $105. Shipping at Newegg was also free. Using this code, you can get an Original Briefcase (256) for $172 shipped.

I don't know if this is a weird error on eBags' part or whether this is intentional, but I'd jump on this before they realize what's up.

Thanks a lot so much.icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif
Just kopped a 256.
Been waiting for Crane's store but 256 in tan is out of stock.

I really am beginning to think that Filson has changed the leather on their bags. The old ones seem to turn a deep chestnut. The new ones do not. I'm 99% sure the leather on the new ones are corrected grain. This is a 15-year old bag.

Cool, who are you going to blame this time?

Here's a before and after of a bag I refinished. It was really shitty and dirty, so I first cleaned the canvas with an eucalypus and lemon cleaning solution, then I rewaxed it by melting down some glove conditioning gel. I added a bit of shoe polish to my wax to give it a truer medium brown tone. It's came out about halfway between Filson's tan and brown colors. The bag looked worse in person than it does in this top pick. It had that yellowish hue that I didn't like. I'm satisfied with how it turned out. The total cost of the supplies was around $18. I'll try to get a photo of the front of the bag.

Damn. I was going to buy the 256 yesterday on Newegg with the coupon code but wanted to wait until I got home to take some measurements to see if I would need the 257 instead. I never got a chance to get back online and make the purchase yesterday so I tried this morning and that code is now expired. baldy[1].gif

Oh well. That's one way to save $172.

I start to worry about it now.
It's been 4 days, still no shipping notification.
The order status remains "processing".
Fingers crossed.

Any dealer where the owner interfaces with the customer can offer the same deal as Newegg. You just have to make them an offer.

Mine included:

"Thank you for shopping at Newegg.com.

"We regret to inform you that your order was auto-voided by our system because it was not shipped in a timely manner."

I had a feeling that was going to be the case but it was worth a shot. Now I don't feel quite so bad about missing out on it. lol

Really? Mine took forever to ship, but it's on its way here now and should arrive this Monday. And I can confirm that I was charged the $108 discounted amount.

But I can't believe they would do that. If you're a big retailer like Newegg or eBags, you should honor and stand by your discounts, even if it might have been an error in the system or something.

Sorry guys... so who other than me did the discount work on?

got my 256 from an extremely unlikely place, nordstrom rack, albeit at an great price ($80). so far am loving the brown. i've been wondering about anyone's experiences with filson's warranty and how they honor it. any stories?

My order status changed from "processing" yesterday to "void". The pending payment has been released too.
It sucks.

Proxy needed if you spot one in tan.
