notes:i would have gotten the accuchek meters on both cards, but i only found one in stock.

i will also send in the mir for accuchek. from what i've heard and the one mir i have sent in to them, they issue full rebates regardless of coupons/eb used. so if i do receive the rebate these purchases will become an $11.67 profit!
