Default Free Style lite test strips

I just purchased a Freestyle Freedom Lite meter so I can start testing . I used Amazon and bought what I thought were the right test strips , Freestyle precision Neo. Wrong! Can't be used with my meter. Amazon does not carry the strips for this meter , I had to resort to Ebay .
Is there a good , cheap source for these particular strips other than Ebay ? Thanks , Bob

Back when I was using the Freestyle Lite meter, Abbott had a discount program that reduced the price for those whose insurance didn't cover them. Might be worth contacting them to see if they have a discount for the Freedom Lite strips.

(I really liked this meter but went to a cheaper OTC meter and strips that I could afford without being tied to a prescription.)
