I get my Verio test strips from Safeway in the pharmacy.

Bayer has a coupon you can use to get a discount off strips if you are paying cash. I don't go through insurance. My pharmacy gives me a cheaper price though because I pay cash. It is a small town pharmacy vs big box and I've been going there for many many years.

The "add more blood" doesn't mean you can use a strip twice for two different readings. It just means if you didn't add enough blood the first time, you can just add more from a second drop using the pokey thing vs trashing the strip and starting over.

Yeah, I seen that happen with my one touch blue strips; and I'll try to get it to pull in a little more blood; but it always means a bad test and wasted strip. reminds me -- time to use the pokey thing Big Grin

With the Bayer Contour Next meter I use, I have picked out of the vial a clean, new test strip. I then insert it into the meter only to have the frickin' thing tell me "remove used test strip and use a new one". Duh??? This has happened on more than one occasion. I have called Bayer Customer support only to be told I must have made a mistake and picked up a used test strip. I don't call CS anymore for meter problems.
