    Arrived the next day, everything was free, just pay for strips and lancets. Free car but you need to use our petrol! I have nothing to compare it to but it seems OK. Rang them first and customer service was good.

    Not sure about this meter but I always use accu-check meters and I very recently got a free one sent to me, as I requested it via their website. The meter is strip free as it uses "cassettes" - these are very expensive though but you get one included in the pack.
    So it's worth ordering a free meter just for 50 free tests!
