Selling Diabetic Test Strips for Cash
As any person who purchases diabetic test strips knows, these items can be expensive. Did you also know that thousands of diabetics out couldn’t pay for these supplies? There are lots of organizations that help these people however, and you can join in their efforts by selling your extra unopened, unexpired test strips for cash rather than throwing them in the trash! Most diabetics are smart enough to keep boxes on hand for when they run low, and before long realize they actually have a few more than what they need.
If you get boxes on regularly, you may have extras are beginning to pile up. Maybe you are not testing that often anymore. You may have shifted to another test strip brand, and still have a few of the old ones that no longer fit your new meter. There are so many potential scenarios.
Is It Even Legal to Sell Test Strips?
What Do You Know About Wellness
Definitely, provided you are their legal owner. Even if your boxes are “mail order only” or “not for resale,” you may still sell them – this only means they couldn’t be sold by a retailer. Certainly, there are some things to remember. Not all brands will be in demand, for instance. Boxes from Medicare cannot be resold, no one is likely to purchase boxes that are damaged, expired or with broken seals. But provided they are a reasonably popular brand, in good condition, and have no shorter than 6 months before expiring (though you may sell at half price for some brands expiring within 3 to 6 months), then your cash could be well on its way!
Finding Ways To Keep Up With Health
Who Will Buy Secondhand Test Strips?
Dealers purchasing diabetic test strips are in business to earn some cash, but the end result is unchanged: someone in need of these supplies but afford them will be getting them for free or at a discount. Dealers generally take brands they wouldn’t usually buy and donate them to shelters, or allot a part of their profit to charities for diabetics. In many cases, they are in business because they are themselves diabetics or have loved ones who have the disease, giving them a personal reason to help others who are struggling with the difficulties of diabetes.
Of course, you have to get to know your dealer first and feel comfortable with them, so do shop around a little bit before picking one! Repeat business often makes you a valued customer who will receive special perks in terms of pricing your strips. Again, it’s about finding a good dealer, so practice some patience and do your research.
