What a shame that Chick-fil-a which is a so called christian company gives police officers up to 50% meal discounts and thats fine because I think they deserve it to for thier service. But DOES NOT give a military discount to active duty military service members in or out of uniform.
An active duty soldier just returned from 18 months of hell and earn many awards to include a purple heart could not even get a meal discount. This was a The HWY 5 and Thornton Rd. location. When I called the corporate office they stated they do not offer the military discounts and sounded like they could have cared less. SO I WILL SPREAD TO MILITARY FAMLIES TO BOYCOTT CHICK FIL A !!! and support all of our service member's who are overseas fighting so that we may have freedom.

The reason chick-fil-a is closed on sunday, is so they can ask the lord for foregiveness after screwing people with their high prices all week long.

must be a bunch of democrats wanting something for nothing and someone else pay for it.I am sure chic-fil-a could give military a discount, but then their meals would have to go up and you would BITCH about that also.Problem is.... military comes in, brings their entire family and gets a discount,then chic-fil-a has given the food to them at their cost.When chic-fil-a's power bill comes, do the military help pay it..HELL NO! If your wanting something for nothing, maybe you need to go to mcdonalds and get a $1 burger and leave chic-fil-a to people who WORk for a living and can afford to eat there.

I think our soldiers are great and am an active member of Soldier's Angels, but I do not think that businesses are obligated to give discounts to anyone. As someone else said, i just makes the price go up for everyone else. I suppose the reason that they give law enforcement a discount is that Chick-fil-a and their patrons benefit by having a police presence in their stores.

I think that we need a lot of police in Chick-fil-a's stores because of the extremely high crime rate there. This MUST be the reason our law enforcement officers would get such a discount. There must be at least 5 holdups a week over there done by guys looking for free chicken and cash.

As for our men in the armed forces, you are what you eat, and they ain't chicken.

Over here at the mall, we recruit non-chicken guys and gals into the military at our recruiting offices, then send them up to the food court for chow before inducting them directly into the marines.

We don't ever see any police over here because we don't give any discounts. They only appear when a free meal is offered.

Get a life, you crazy people. Whoever started this topic is a nut. Chick-fil-a doesn't owe anyone anything and it is nobody's business who they offer discounts to. If you don't like their product, don't go there.

Come on people. WTF is wrong with this country?! Geez. I love, respect, and thank soldiers for the job they do. Even related to two now serving overseas. Having said that, it's a job. They signed up. There is no draft. Same with teachers, and cops, and firefighters, and grocery store clerks, and bus drivers, and doctors, and nurses, and single moms, and taxi drivers...tought jobs, god love 'em..so they should all get a discount on everything.

Businesses aren't in business to just give whoever wants a discount a discount. They are in business to make money. Boycott all you want...at least the line will go quicker for me, so thanks. And complain about high prices? Again..it's a business...don't like it? Move on. My gosh...give me give me give me.

Larry is right...they start giving military discounts, they'll be bringing their whole family in.

I suppose the thread starter spent this rainy Saturday driving around trying to get discounts everywhere....geesh

Real smart move in a time of economic disaster. Think real hard, you might be putting a military spouse out of work with your genus idea.

Is it just me, or is there something unseemly about someone running around with their combat helmet upside down extorting handouts?

Shame on you.

how can a teacher teach you anything when they themselves, are products of the system.Why is it that the last 50 years the kids that come uot of school are lazy, broke and owe more than they are making.When was the last time you saw a teacher that had everything paid for, had cd's in the bank and had used her past wisely to invest and become wealthy.HOW do you teach someone else to build wealth when you yourself are broke as hell and pay an extra $35 for your tag to say EDUCATOR? Everytime see a educators car, I wonder just HOW much that teacher is from being broke paying extra for a prestige tag when they bitch and moan about their pay.SPEND IT WISELY instead of giving more than necessary back to the government.

What does this mean? Obviously, you need to stop ranting about the opinions of others long enough to make sense. Do you mean how CLOSE the teacher is from being broke? Many companies do offer discounts to teachers because we buy treats for students as rewards (using our own money). A discount sometimes helps a teacher on a restricted budget stretch their money. Chic-fil-a is a great partner-in-education, but if their prices were lower (or I had a discount) I could afford to eat there more often.

I had rather have lunch with a millionaire than sit in the classroom with a teacher who is one paycheck away from broke

Chick fil a has has the best customer service of any fast food place out there. It cost a little more but its worth it. I probably make less than most teachers but you don't see me asking for any handouts. Teachers have become the biggest group of crybabies out there.
