I am currently shopping for a snow blower and after much research decided on a cub cadet blower.

Cub cadet sits at cubcadet.com with the canadian site at cubcadet.ca

What surprised me is this company knows the value of a .ca and even uses CubCadetDealer.ca as a separate url to find a dealer. Usually the manufacturer would do something like this cubcadet.ca/dealers or dealers.cubcadet.ca but with .ca's being so inexpensive this manufacturer did it right by registering CubCadetDealer.ca


That said they still made a fairly big mistake.... can you spot it?

Yup when I went to find a dealer I punched in the plural and....

The plural instinctively made more sense to me and had I not had the foresight to go back and enter the singular version they might have lost a sale. Sure they advertise the singular but for an extra ten bucks they could have had both and eliminated the problem.

I’m sure they would have loved to own cc.ca but Canada Computers already beat them to the punch. :)
