Looking for Free Meter, No Insurance, NO PROBLEM!!
I just want to inform any of you out there looking for meters and don't quite have the money for it? It's easy! When I was diagnosed, I received a meter from the hospital that was broken! I e-mailed multiple companies, and here are the ones who responded:
www.Accu-chek.com (the customer service is wonderful! Just explain your situation, and they will allow you to pick one, ANY KIND FOR FREE!)
www.Bayer.com (access the diabetes part of it, request a meter, you can receive a contour or breeze 2 for FREE!!)
www.Onetouchgold.com or www.Lifescan.com (same as before, they'll offer you a One Touch Ultra 2 or Ultra Mini for FREE!!)
Contacting any one of these companies are happy to oblige
Although, Accu-chek by far is the best, they sent me a Compact Plus, along with (after requesting it,) 30 extra needles, and 51 test strips, FOR FREE!! Enjoy, I hope this helps!!
Getting free BG meters.
Over the years I have received many free meters from diabetic educators, at diabetic expos or shows, from pharmacists, and from the companies just by calling in an telling them you want to try our their meter or just by asking for a new one. Recently I did this when both of the ones i was using started acting up and giving me error messages so I lost confidence in them. They quickly sent me two new ones.

Many of the meter manufacturers will give you the machine for free if you buy some test strips. All you have to do is ask your pharmacist what is free this week.
Splendid , un believable to us.
