notes:i tried a few different $5/$20's and they all came "already redeemed." I may have to give up on these at this point. :(

i will send in for the accu-check mir (inside box). i already received rebates on 2 of these that i've purchased this year! unlike bayer, they do send rebates even if you use coupons, rr's, eb, etc.
