$1 out of every $4 spent on U.S. healthcare costs goes to treating diabetes. If that tidbit doesn’t give you a glimpse of the cost of leading a healthy life with diabetes, perhaps this one will: About 1 in 10 Americans have Type 1 or Type 2 Diabetes, and 1 in 5 aren’t diagnosed.
Glucose test strips are a crucial part of keeping track of your blood sugar levels throughout the day so you can properly regulate them with the correct amounts of insulin. When you prick your finger and place your blood sample on a strip, it provides a color-changing reading to indicate your glucose concentration.
The frequency of testing ranges depending on your diagnosis type and severity, which can change over the years (as can which brands your provider recommends and insurance covers).
Whether you’ve stocked up on tests that you can no longer use before their expiration or have lost a loved one with diabetes, selling diabetic test strips can provide some extra cash and help another diabetic in need of supplies.
We understand that most cases resulting in you having spare supplies aren’t positive, so we’re here to help as much as possible. When it comes to selling diabetic test strips, how do you know where to do it?
Here’s how Cash for Diabetics makes it easy and ethical.
Why you should consider selling diabetic test strips
As we’ve mentioned, most scenarios that leave you with extra unused diabetic supplies are frustrating. You may have spare tests as a result of the following:
- Your insurance coverage has changed
- Your provider has recommended that you switch brands or lower your testing frequency
- You’ve purchased the incorrect brand or model that does not work with your meter type
- You have leftover free samples from your provider
- You’ve recently given birth and no longer have gestational diabetes
- You’ve lost a family member with diabetes
No matter the case, navigating your new financial circumstances adds a new level of stress; hence why so many people turn to selling diabetic test strips.
Selling unused diabetic supplies is 100% legal, so long as they were not provided by government aid (such as Medicare or Medicaid).
Rather than these extra supplies taking up room in your bathroom cabinet, why not recoup some of your investment?
Access to affordable diabetic supplies is critical for living a healthy day-to-day life with the disease, and unfortunately many people are struggling to find the products they need.
According to recent studies, half of the people living with diabetes can’t afford insulin. By selling diabetic test strips, you’re also helping another person manage their health properly and at a discounted price!
How to find a trusted company to purchase your supplies
76% of American adults shop online, and it’s no wonder why. This day in age, selling and buying products from your mobile device or laptop is far more time efficient than doing so in-person. Plus, you gain access to online reviews to ensure that you feel confident before pressing “confirm”.
We’re always asking for our sellers to provide feedback so that we can continue to improve and make everyone’s lives easier.

What our process looks like
To help you get the ball rolling on selling diabetic test strips, we’ve created a convenient buy-back tool to walk you through confirming your eligibility. Simply let us know if you’ve sold to us before, what you’re selling (including the brand, type, expiration date, and box condition), and how often you plan on selling to us.
Remember that there’s no pressure to sell on a regular basis, but we can make the process even more simple by scheduling your deliveries however you see fit if you choose!
We’ve laid out our pricing guidelines for you to confirm how much we can offer for your items. Keep in mind that test strips must be at least 10 months from their expiration date in order to receive a payout, as items with 3 to 9 months will receive 50%.
When selling diabetic test strips to us, it is crucial to ensure that your items are no less than 3 months from expiring as we will not be able to accept them.
The condition of your box also plays a significant role in our final offer, as mint-condition packaging is ideal.
However, we can accept your items if they are still functional and sealed but have minor cosmetic damage (which our inspection team will confirm) for a discounted payout.
All items must also be unopened to ensure everyone’s safety.
Once you’ve double-checked that we can purchase your items, it’s time to get your free kit. Fill out our quick form to get your prepaid box delivered right to your door! Once you receive it, carefully pack up your items using tissue or newspaper to cushion them.
Remember that you can take photos to reference back to, as our team will do the same to ensure that there are no misunderstandings.
After returning the box to us, your work selling diabetic test strips is done! Our inspectors will confirm the regulations we’ve laid out and write you a check that same day (arriving at your home in 2 to 8 business days).
Again, we are fully committed to ensuring your privacy. While you should not attempt to remove any labels from your items’ original packaging to ensure its condition, feel free to use a magic marker to cross out your name or address. If not, rest assured that our experts will carefully remove it for you.
For customers selling diabetic test strips, we only offer check payments through USPS delivery. While we’re big fans of the convenience of online selling, we also like to stick to the paper-route when it comes to payout to guarantee the security of your account and its safe arrival.
