Rated 4 out of 5 by MNupnorth1 Cost effective product
I've had to test my blood sugar for 25 years and it has always been frustrating trying to find affordable products that do a good job. With no health insurance, cost is always a big consideration. I am sold on the ReliOn brand and use their test strips, tester, insulin and A1C home test kits and am delighted with them. I sure hope Walmart can keep them available and affordable.
Rated 5 out of 5 by BrokeFrequentShopper SO AFFORDABLE!
My insurance does not cover any of my testing supplies - so I had to look for an inexpensive substitute for my One-Touch Ultra test strips. When I first bought it, I tested with my One-Touch & the Relion Micro meter at the same time (about 10 times). The numbers were always within 10 of each other - The Relion Micro meter was always a lower result - a Plus in your log-book! I highly recccomend this product and have already gotten someone else to switch to this less expensive brand! A+ in my book!
Rated 5 out of 5 by BargainsMakeMeSmile Great buy
Strips work just as well as the higher priced strips.
Yet, half the cost.
Rated 5 out of 5 by LoveOnlineShoping So Easy To Use!!!
Love this product. It requires such a small drop of blood, thus preventing less painful pricking. People like me that have to check their blood levels several times a day will really appreciate this.
Rated 3 out of 5 Inexpensive but inaccurate
After posting an extremely high fasting number one morning, I began to test the Relion Micro against another brand. In the upper range of my numbers, it was consistently 20-30 points different. Just recently I had my blood drawn and tested this meter against the results. The lab results were exactly 30 points lower. I used the calibration solution to test the meter and it is within the mid-range of acceptable.
I have enjoyed how inexpensive the strips are, especially since I was uninsured for a long time. However, be mindful that the meter is very basic and it's possible that you'll have a similar experience and find your number inconsistent with the numbers you post on other meters or in the lab. To me, 30 points makes a huge difference in treatment.
Rated 5 out of 5 by FatherD Not a money pit product!
Strips average 40 cents each, compared to others that average $1 each. I tested the meter against lab tests at the Dr's office and results were within 2 points every time. Meter requires no coding and very small amount of blood. You can't beat the cost. This is a fantastic product, highly recommended for those on a budget.
Rated 5 out of 5 by szim52 A Good, Cheaper version of Ultra One
Works great, use the same way as Ultra One but only cheaper.
Rated 5 out of 5 by deguarddog Compact and convenient
ReliOn provides affordable glucose monitoring products that are reliable and convenient to use. I highly recommend their line.
Rated 4 out of 5 Not too sure how accurate these strips/meter are. When I use my One-Touch to compair, sometimes the reading are off by 20-30.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Jimichandra Reliable, inexpensive
Least expensive blood glucose test strips, come in a plastic container (not individually wrapped), easy to use. This is the one.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Gary1911A1 Great Test Strips for Diabetics
Excellent value compared to other test strips I have tried. Allows for testing on other parts of the body besides fingertips and the strips almost suck the blood sample into them resulting in very little test failures.
Rated 5 out of 5 by DLEE2012 The price of the Reli-On test strips is much better than test strips I have used for other
meters. I also purchased the Reli-On meter and again a great price and I feel the product is
equivalent to other brands that cost much more.
Rated 5 out of 5 by honeyspet WOW
best bargin in the world.. Least expensive test strips ever. $40.oo per 100 strips cannot be beat. Love the red machine, and can always have strips on hand insteaed of running out. A really great deal for those with no insurance, so we can be in touch with our numbers. grrreeeaaattt deal.
Rated 5 out of 5 by goaliebob Great value. I am saving over $50.00 per month testing 4 times a day. Thank you!
Rated 5 out of 5 by CtownGaMom Great product
The product is really affordable and works extremely well for me.
Rated 5 out of 5 by cubtat2 Awesome
Very affordable and since I live on a tight budget, I need all the help I can get with my testing supplies. Since my insurance does not cover supplies, I don't have to worry about paying upwards of $70 out-of-pocket for some of my other brand-name strips or trying to fumble with smaller strips.
Rated 2 out of 5 by CharlietheMAn Too many E-7 readings on last batch of 100
I am getting 10-15 E-7 readings with a large blood sample. This is getting costly. I hope it was just this one box of 100. I have used this product for more than a year with NO E-7s. Now all of a sudden I get E-7 on 3 meters for this batch of strips. I emailed relion to get their feedback. I think they have a quality issue and they may have produced a bad batch of test strips.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Airwalk Great product. Easy to use for all ages.
These test strips are easy to use and accurate. I use them with the ReliOn Micro blood glucose monitoring kit, lancing device, and 33G ultra thin plus lancets. All are wonderful products. Low, low prices on all these products. Medicare approved so I feel I'm helping the government save a little money by purchasing quality products for much less money.
Rated 5 out of 5 just diagnosed
I have just been diagnnosed. It was very confusing to find the right meter. After looking at several different ones, I decided on the relion. The reviews were good and after using it a couple times already I can certainly see why. Very easy to use, painless lanceing, great carrying case. Makes the whole process of having to test a little easier to swallow. You won't be disappointed with this product.
Rated 5 out of 5 by petuniafish For the Relion meter
Can't believe both are so reasonable, and
work great. What a savings between these
strips and the meter and others.
Rated 4 out of 5 by snave51 Nice and easy to use
I am new to testing blood sugar, and this product line is very easy to use. My only "complaint" is that the strips are quite small. I like the fact that it only requires a tiny amount of blood to do the test.
Rated 5 out of 5 by robert13601 works as expected
Rated 1 out of 5 by tazman1967 not good
i got this meter because the strips are a lot cheaper than the ones for contour. when i got it home i tested my blood with BOTH meters,5 mins apart. no food or drink...this meter was 50 points LOWER. dont wast your money....the lancetasare great
Rated 4 out of 5 by ORcoaster Hard to get out of container
These are the 2nd type of test strip I've used. I like the price at 36 cents per test. But I have trouble with the container, which is about the size and shape of a cigarrette lighter. The top snaps off and there is a small round hole in the center. It is difficult to get some of the strips to slide out of this hole without dumping a lot of them in my hand. And they seem to stick together, so that I often grab 2 instead of 1. Instructions say to keep the container closed to prevent moisture getting in, and I don't think I'm supposed to handle them by the ends, just the middle. So the longer I struggle to get them out, the more I worry about ruining them.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Alsounhappy Too complicated
wanted an easy light weight portable device and was disappointed
Rated 3 out of 5 by shopsalot45 Okay for the money.
This glucometer is inexpensive as are the test strips in comparison to the other products like it on the market, but it is not easy to figure out how to access the options or even know what options are on it since mine did not come with an instruction booklet. It is easy to take with you since it is a nice small, compact glucometer.
Rated 4 out of 5 by fans123 instruction manual is confusing for a first timer
read the instruction manual three times, before I got frusturated and then had to seek help from a pharmacist
Rated 1 out of 5 by jaxomlong Supposed to match Ultima Meter
Not put in first package- corrected and shipped- web site had these up as the matching strips for Relion Ultima meter. Wrong ones. Right ones not available.
We're getting a Walmart in the neighborhood. I'll wait till then.
Rated 2 out of 5 by nebolady necessary
Test strips did not fit my meter, not returnable so I had to buy a relion meter to use the strips. You should say it only fits the relion meters.
Rated 5 out of 5 by 0922 great unit
the strips are easy to use and the elderly have no problem obtaining the blood for the strips
