I love the Contour USB! But if you get one gratis I’ll be well miffed!! ha ha, not really, go for it.. I had a voucher from my DSN to get £5 off.. but if you can do better… I’ve mostly bought meters or had them free from the hospital, they sometimes give them out free for diabetes week (mid/late June, my birthday!) in pharmacies (particularly supermarket ones) or, if you can bare it, sign up to Diabetes UK and get Balance magazine – always offers in there… My mum signed me up as a life member in ’89 when I was diagnosed, so have the ongoing pleasure of Balance and all the happy stories of toe amputations etc..!
