If you have one of the inexpensive XS meters that were sold on eBay (for as low as $29.99), and care about getting a strip guide or battery cover, someone on eBay is selling them. OTOH - I called Roche about a strip guide (I didn't want to ask for guide and battery cover) and Roche sent me one at no charge.
Thanks for letting us know! I have three meters, two of which I got super cheap, but they did not have the strip guide or battery cover. I was able to get battery cover and strip guide from Roche, so now I have two complete meters. I don't want to push my luck and ask for another set of covers from Roche, so I may opt to buy them from eBay. Why the back ups? Well, in case my main one decides to die some day, which I hear is not common. Or, I may give my extras to a friend, as I am a big believer in self management and from the data, it clearly saves lives when folks self manage, reducing events by about 50% on average.
I checked out Ebay and here are the links.
