RE: [IP] expensive meters



Actually, you might not even need the rebates and sales.  I know that I have
gotten free meters from calling up the meter companies and telling them that
I would really like to use their meter.  My insurance company will pay for
the strips, but not the meter.  I also mention how often I test in a day.  I
have had them send one to me right away without a trade in.

How many of you have bought a meter? I have had at least 5 and have not
purchased any. There are rebates on top of rebates from most of the
companies to get theirs into your hands. They know that it isn't the meter
that is so costly, but you must then buy their strips. If anyone is about to
purchase a meter, check the sales and rebates first. Many will even take a
trade-in.
