Thread: Do you offer discounts to military, fire, police?

  1. #1

    Question Do you offer discounts to military, fire, police?

    Just curious if anyone out there offers a discount to any customer that either served in the military or is currently a police officer or a fireman?

    If so, how does this work for you?

    I don't give discounts to civil servants. I don't really come across any in my demographic but if I did, they wouldn't get special treatment. That is their career choice. This may not make me a popular guy but they are doing their job and they are paid for it. I have two publicly know discount levels. No discount or completely free. The latter is for churches/charities and some select family members.

    LOL. Not the first answer you were looking for Los, I'm sure.

    About 25% of my area are active military. Who knows how many are retired military. Lots of them stayed here after getting out. I wasn't popular when I brought this up on another board.

    1. You need to make a certain amount every year to make your numbers to survive and grow.
    2. With #1 if 50% of my area is military or former military then I would have to make up the discounts on the other 50% which means I would be over charging 50% of the people to make up the difference.
    3. My services are a luxury not a necessity. No one is going to die if I don't clean the roof or wash the driveway etc.

    I don't give a discount for this reason. My prices are reasonable and affordable. The military members that I know make some darn good money. Well over the average income.

    Now I am looking for other ways to give back that will help more than just the one individual like clean the VFW hall or something that will be good for many.

    Absolutely. 25% off to any active or combat Veteran, VFW or American Legion member, and any Law Enforcement/Fire/Emergency response employee.

    No....Being both prior service and a paid fireman I accepted to take the positions...


    If I can tell a senior is on a fixed income I will give them a break. I don't advertise it however.

    Absolutely!!! Fayetteville N.C. is the home of FT.Bragg, the 82nd Airborne and our main service area.

    Our Service Men and Women made up 70% of our residential customer base this year.

    A discount for these brave folks is the least we can do to say "Thank You" for protecting a freedom we enjoy, and sometimes take for granted, Think About It!!!

    God Bless Our Troops!!!!!!!
