Extra Glucose Monitors??

Did you get the Glucose Meters at Walgreens and need someone to donate them too? Reader Christy found someone who could use them! Read on for details...

I have been couponing and using your site for a while and love it...I know a lot of times you guys talk about donating to people and I did the monitors at Walgreens and today gave them to a single mom that has an 11 year old with diabetes...she was shocked that they were free(moneymaker)! She was so blessed by getting them and said that they have to test daughters blood about 5 times a day which means one box will only last 2 days...I was wondering if you know of anyone that doesn't have anything to do with the boxes they got and would be willing to donate them or if they didn't do the deal and have coupons they are willing to let me use to get more boxes for her...


If you have extra boxes you'd love to share. Please contact Christy at lopez_christy at yahoo dot com and she will put them to good use!

Is she looking for the monitors or the test strips? Just wondering why the monitors would only last 2 days.

Heads up - Starting Jan 31st you can get the Bayer contour meters free with that coupon (just pay tax) and get a $10 Register Reward. Ebay prices are insane if you were thinking about buying extra coupons. For the actual meters, I donate to Boise Rescue Mission and the Humphreys diabetes center. If she needs coupons for the test strips, she can have mine!

Did the coupons come in the paper? Let me know what insert if they did and she could definately have mine!

The test kit comes with 10 test strips, it's like buying Razors, it's cheeper to To buy the start up kit then it is to buy the replacements for them

Hi...so to answer some questions...what Martins said is right...I checked Walgreens last night to maybe buy her some test strips and they are 63.99 for 50 on sale...very spendy so was just giving her the kits and letting her use the strips out of them...also the girl loved the new monitor...the coupons are from 10/25 RP and are for up to 30.00 off a purchase of Contour or Breeze monitors...thanks for all your help.
