  • Repairman Fixes Servicemember's Wife's Furnace For $1.00

    He gave her a "deployment discount".

    When a military wife’s furnace broke down, a Pennsylvania repairman stepped in and fixed the malfunctioning unit at a huge discount.
    He charged her $1.
    “He said that the $1 was a joke and to thank my husband for his service,” Bridget Stevens wrote in a since-deleted Facebook post that has gone viral.
    Paul Betlyn of Moon Township’s Betlyn Heating and Cooling said the job normally would have cost about $150, but he gave Stevens, a mother of two, a “deployment discount.”

        “Breaking News,”

          The title sounded like the set-up to a lewd joke.

            Yup. THere's a plumber around these parts who gives servicemen and veterans a 25% discount on all parts and labor.
            My oil heat dealer gives me a 5 cents a gallon discount for being a vet as well.

              Does that mean he is operating at a loss, or is he just jacking up his prices that far for non-veterans that he can afford a quarter cut?

                He's probably breaking even. He's a USNavy vet as well. He seems to be doing pretty good for himself...new truck every couple seasons, apprentices that are on the ball...etc.
