Question about Filson 257 briefcase

I've recently become interested in buying a Filson computer bag/briefcase. They are listed on filson's website at $260 but can be found at most websites for $234. I was wondering if that's a higher price than most people have paid? It seems like most people have talked about getting it for a better deal than $234. Should I wait til they go on sale further or is $234 the best price I'll get? Thanks for any input.

Cranes has it at $234 as well. Is that the best price I will get on it? Or do you think they will go on sale at some point?

Not to derail, but has anyone used ScotchGuard on their Filson? I got a tan 256 for Christmas and was thinking it might be a good idea to protect it before it gets dirty. Does the ScotchGuard change the color at all?

I haven't used ScothGuard on my tan Filson 256, because I want it to get some Patina.
But whenever I've used ScotchGuard, I didn't notice any change in colour.

Got mine for 210 shipped at Joe's Sporting Goods. They seem to have frequent Filson promotions. Excellent bag.

Plateau Outdoors sold me a brand new one for $205 (taxes + shipping). They originally asked for $210, but I said Cable Car Clothiers in San Francisco was willing to do $210 (also taxes + shipping), so they beat it price by $5. Call them up.
