Yes, I received mine a couple of weeks ago and I used up the 25 test strips that came with it. I had an upcoming appt with my Endo so, I decided to wait till then to get a new prescription for the strips.
I really like that it has a backlight. Also, the amount of blood needed is very small compared to the one touch ultra link.
I plan on using the discount card that came with it. But, if you read the fine print it's only good for 1 year. After the year is over I'll be paying more then my current test strips because it falls in a higher tier. Another decision to make when that time comes is whether to continue with the old or the new!
