I received my Contour USB Meter today, it was nice recieving 2 boxes of test strips for a total of 50 free test strips. I called the 800 number to register my meter and they are sending me another box of 25 free test strips.
I recently signed up for a free contour usb and it came today... funny thing is... I got THREE of them.. LOLOLOL.. depending on how I like it (how well it compares to my other meters) I will keep one or maybe two (one for spare in the car if I forget mine) BUT... I will definitely have a free one for someone else...
I would prefer pickup as I don't really want to ship.. I am in Auburn, CA... but if someone really needs it.. I may consider shipping.. YEAH!
Kinda strange though, it requires charging. I am bad enough not remembering to charge my phone, not sure how I will do having something else to charge too. And not sure how long the charge is going to last.
Did your meter come with test strips? I am also getting a freebie Contour USB from the company (Bayer), but I don't know if it comes with any strips or not. I am only allowed to order strips free from my insurance company every three months, and I not due for another allotment of strips for about another month or so.
Here is the Bayer website where I applied for my free Contour USB meter. The application says its a kit, but I'm not for sure if it has strips in it. There is no big hassle to qualify, I just filled out the form and they sent me an email saying it will be shipped within two or three days.
