If you have diabetes; you need to get comfortable with checking your sugar levels all the time. You will have test kits that assist you in doing so. Those who have this condition will always have plenty of these kits around. They most likely tested out quite some brands before finding the most suitable for their use. This means that they still have the other brands stored and not to be used. These test strips were not designed to last forever. That means you will end up throwing most of them away.
These strips cost a fortune to buy. The disease, however, does not discriminate who it affects, as anyone is susceptible to it. Different insurance covers also tend to avoid paying for the purchase of these strips. Those how have extra boxes thus have a business opportunity. In case you have extra boxes of unopened test strips that you not use, you can sell them for cash, instead of throwing them in the trash.
Most diabetics will stock up on a lot of these strips, to cater for their needs in case they cannot get some more later. Those who receive such boxes regularly will after some time start having surplus that they cannot beat the expiry date in terms of usage. If you also happen to opt for another brand for whatever reason, there shall be usable but unnecessary older brands sitting in your shelves. Pregnancy is another case where the strips will be out of use after delivery. Such boxes are good for selling. It may also happen that your loved one who had diabetes passes on, leaving behind a sizeable stock of those boxes. All these scenarios point to the fact that there are plenty of opportunities to supply test strips to those who need but cannot buy at retail prices.
There has to be legal ownership for you to consider selling these strips. The buyer can be anyone, and they do not necessarily have to get a prescription to do so. It does not matter whether they are labelled as not for sale. It is only retailers who are not allowed to sell those in boxes marked as not for sale. In case you have boxes that show signs of damage, have reached their expiry date, or have their seals broken, you will not find a willing buyer. Buyers will only go for those in good condition. They should also have a considerably long time before they reach their expiry date, preferably about six months.
The people to sell these strips to are the dealers, whose job is to take them off your hands and give them to the needy, or to sell them at a small price. This is the best way for the needy to get the help they could not earlier. You can trade with any dealer you like. To avoid so much stress, look for a dealer that will not give you grief when it comes to payment.
