How to Sell Your Diabetic Supplies 101

Do you or a loved one have extra, unopened, and unexpired diabetic supplies that are collecting dust? Did you know that companies like Test Strip Buyers will buy back diabetic test strips and pay you cash? Rather than letting these expensive tools that you no longer need go to waste, sell your diabetic supplies and make some extra spending money. 

The Rise of Diabetic Test Strips

Developed in 1965, test strips provided an immediate reading for blood sugar or glucose levels. To use a test strip, the user pricks their finger, distributes blood on the test strip, and then inserts the strip into the meter. Thus, providing a reading within minutes, and in some cases seconds. 

Although the test strips were created only for use in doctors’ offices, by 1980, manufacturers developed meters for at-home use. This quickly became a staple for those living with diabetes because they are required to test their blood up to 10 times a day. The test stip industry quickly became a multibillion-dollar business, accounting for roughly a quarter of pharmacy costs among insulin-dependent individuals who monitor their blood sugar. 

Why Sell Diabetic Supplies

Diabetic supplies are expensive. If you no longer need or have use of an unexpired and unopened box of test strips, insulin, or other supplies, why let them go to waste? Sell your diabetic supplies and earn easy cash. Four of the top reasons why individuals sell their diabetic supplies include:

  1. Make quick and easy cash.
  2. Helping others who need supplies.
  3. Helping the environment.
  4. Rid yourself of clutter.

  1. I never knew there would be a market for selling back unused supplies like this. I know they can be expensive so it’s a great option to offset those costs.

  2. I have a friend who has an excess of diabetic supplies. I’m going to have to show this to her. She’s always talking about not knowing what to do with them.

  3. I know that diabetes is widespread and I know many people who use these test strips. They need a constant supply. Interesting to learn that there is a place where one can sell excess supplies.
