3. Buy Less Save Less
Diabetic Outlet offers quantity discounts on glucose test strips, lancets, and other diabetic supplies. The formula is simple, the more you buy the more you save. For example you can buy 4 boxes of glucose test strips and save 5% per box. That’s 5% on top of the already low prices. That sounds too good to be true, doesn’t it? Do not even look for the quantity discount table on those test strip pages.
4. Do Not Bundle & Save

5. Do Not Take Advantage of Autoship
Here is what they say about Autoship:
“Automatic Shipment is a unique program that helps you save time and money with your glucose monitoring supplies. Avoid the inconvenience of placing orders over and over. Simply order your supplies such as test strips or lancets once and schedule to receive them at the frequency you need. You will save 5% on all subsequent orders.”
I am going to buy my test strips and lancets over and over. I don’t mind paying the full price every time and going though the whole checkout process. I don’t need to take advantage of the Autoship.
6. Pay for Shipping
Don’t you love paying for shipping on top of the cost of your test strips? Isn’t it so nice to choose from a variety of costly shipping options? I know some of you folks out there like to order your test strips ahead of time with the Free Shipping, but I would love to pay a chunk of extra money to get my test strips next day. It does not bother me a bit. Why would I want to receive my test strips in just 3 to 6 business days free of shipping charge?
There you have it. My 6 ways to make sure you won’t save money on your glucose test strips and testing essentials. Let me know if you know any other ways to Not save by submitting a comment below.
