Kinda makes me wonder why Arctic Cat will only offer financing for residents of the US. The other three snowmobile companies have US and Canadian deals for financing but not Cat.

I think that this is a mistake on the part of Cat and I know of a few guys that have bought a different brand because of the "free ride for a year" deal.

I believe Cat should reconsider this policy. Supposedly if you believe all the rumors about Cat having lower sales reports, then you would think that they would be considering all options to draw new customers and solidifying their relationship with the current ones.

Just my 2 cents.

The financing game in todays world is a big a part as the discount sales game. Any dealer who ONLY offers Sheffield for A/C financing is living in the STONE AGE. I personally know of dealers who have 15-20 differant finance programs available to customers. I also know of certain MULTI-LINE dealerships who know how to work the paper trail so their customers can finance one brand of TOY on another brands finance program. There are TONS of finance programs available on the INTERNET. BUT... you need to be smart... and read the FINE PRINT. I came across a SCREAMIN DEAL online. The price of the purchased product ( less the sales tax) devided into 36 equal monthly payments @ 0% interest for 36 months. BUT... the catch is if you F-UP on more than 2 payments within the 36 months, it AUTOMATICALLY goes to 24.99% interest rate. So I have them do an automatic withdrawl from my acct, so I don't get SUCKED into their TRAP.

Banks don't offer those kinds of deals. Finance companies do but the rates can be steep.

But why should you have to go find a finance company to offer that deal to you when all the other snowmobile brands offer it almost every year?

Key to making a sale is to make it as easy as possible for the customer to close the deal.
