Selling Diabetic Test Strips for Cash

As anybody who buys diabetic test strips knows, these things can be pricey. Did you also know that due to financial issues, thousands of diabetics out there couldn’t get these supplies? There are plenty of organizations that help these patients however, and you can take part in their efforts by selling your extra unopened, unexpired test strips for cash instead of just throwing them away! A lot of diabetics are wise enough to keep some strips on hand in case their supplies run low, and before long discover they have a few more than they do need.

If you get boxes on regularly, you may have extras are beginning to pile up. Maybe you are not testing as frequently as you used to. You may have changed to another test strip brand, and still have a supply of the old supplies that don’t suit your new meter. There are endless possible scenarios.

Is Selling Test Strips Even Legal?

Absolutely yes, if you own them. Even if your boxes are labeled “not for resale” or “mail order only,” you may still sell them – what this means is that they can’t be sold via a retailer. Surely, there are a few things to bear in mind. For example, not all brands will have a high demand. Boxes provided by Medicare cannot be resold, and nobody will buy expired or damaged boxes or those with broken seals. But so long as they are a popular brand, in usable condition, and have a minimum of 6 months prior to expiration (you can get half price for particular brands that are expiring in 3 to 6 months though), then you could be holding the money in your hand in just a few days!

Who Will Buy Secondhand Test Strips?

Dealers who purchase diabetic test strips are in business to earn money, but the final outcome is the same: somebody who needs these supplies and can’t pay for them will get them, either at a discount or for nothing. Dealers will usually accept brands they wouldn’t typically buy and then donate them to shelters, or take a portion of their profit and give it to diabetes-related charities. In various cases, they are in the business because they have diabetes themselves or their loved ones, and that gives them a personal reason to help other diabetics.

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 will usually make you a valued customer who will get special consideration when it comes to pricing your supplies. Again, it boils down to finding the right dealer, so be patient and do your homework.
