Buying Contour Next Test Strips - October 2023 Prices

Many diabetics struggle to find affordable diabetic supplies often making decisions between paying the electric bill or buying test strips. If you're looking to save money on Contour Next Test Strips, you've come to the right place. We’ll take a look at October 2023 prices for Contour Next Test Strips from different retailers. We'll also provide some tips on how to find the best deals on these test strips.

Contour Next Test Strips: Accuracy and Affordability

Contour Next Test Strips are a popular choice for people with diabetes who need to monitor their blood sugar levels regularly. These blood glucose test strips are known for their accuracy and ease of use. However, they can also be expensive.  

Ascensia, the maker of Contour Next Test Strips, recommends buying these test strips at Walmart, Amazon, Walgreens, CVS, Rite-Aid, Kroger and Meijer, however, manufacturers often don't point consumers to the most affordable options. To help diabetics compare prices, we look at prices from all major retailers.  For major retailers who didn't have prices online, we used data from GoodRx, a popular discount coupon site. 

Our chart takes into account different quantities of test strips. We use “price per strip” as there are a few different types of Contour Next Test Strips available, including 50-count, 70-count, and 100-count boxes. For all the retailers listed, we took the lowest price available online. By using price per test strip, we can accurately compare apples to apples.

There are also different types of Contour Next blood glucose meters, and some meters require specific types of test strips. If you need help with understanding which Contour Next Test Strips are compatible with which meters, visit our blog post, Contour Test Strips Compatibility with Contour Next Meters: A Guide.

Highest Prices for Contour Next Test Strips: GoodRx

No online price means hard to compare. 

According to data from GoodRx, a popular pharmacy benefits manager offering discounts on RX and OTC healthcare products, Sam’s Club, Costco, Target, and Safeway are the highest in this comparison. This does not mean these retailers have the highest prices. On the contrary, they may have lower prices at their retail locations, however, they do not publish their prices online, so we have used data from GoodRx. Note that Sam’s Club and Costco do not require a membership to purchase test strips at their locations.

Mid-Range Prices for Contour Next Test Strips: Albertsons, CVS, Kroger, Walgreens

Retail store convenience has a price. 

The middle of the pack includes retailers with prices ranging between 50 - 73 cents per strip including Albertsons, CVS, Kroger, Walgreens. These stores offer convenience as they have numerous retail locations. In the case of Albertsons, they offer a 50-count and 100-count box. We used the 50-count box in this comparison as the price for 2 boxes of 50-count test strips is cheaper than the price for 1 box of 100-count test strips. CVS, Kroger, and Walgreens all offer the 70-count box which Ascensia is now pushing for most retail consumers. Some retailers do not sell online and only offer these prices in-store.
