I was only successful once in getting a free meter directly from the 
company.  The AccuCheck rep told me at a diabetes fair that AccuCheck was 
offering a "buy a box of test strips get a Compact meter free" at CVS 
drugstores.  When I went to a couple CVS drugstores in my area, neither of 
them had the meter in stock or even knew about any free deal.  When I got 
home, I called AccuCheck and explained the situation to them, they sent me 
a free meter and box of cartridges.  I've gotten free LifeScan Ultras once 
from the LifeScan rep at a diabetes fair, and once with the "buy 100 strips 
get one free" deal.   A lot of companies periodically have the "buy 100 
strips get a free meter" deal.  In fact, a store near me right now is 
offering the Compact free if you buy one box of cartridges (the Compact 
uses cartridges rather than individual test strips).
