Okay, I have to be hit over the head before learning a lesson. Bought 100 One Touch blue strips some time ago, and they came in 4 boxes of 25 strips. One container was badly flawed, showing 145 but...

I did not know they had been discontinued. Actually, I have the newer OneTouch UltaSmart which I'm told uses the same strips.

Has anyone found cheaper OneTouch strips cheaper than $65-75 / 100?

Yes, $38 / 100 vs $65-75 / 100 based on Amazon and Walmart.

Reviews are divided: love them or hate them, but ~80% positive.

I avoid third party strips but these are from One Touch.

Faith in third party test stripes instead of buying OneTouch?

Enormous price differences between OneTouch and 3rd party test strips. Worth the savings or not worth the risk?
