How to Get Rich From Diabetic Strips

I don’t know what the hell is wrong with people but all of the sudden I see a new “Diabetic Strips” trend amongst some of these real estate forums that I frequent.  I guess this is some fall back plan people are pushing on newbies if you’re not able to make it as a successful real estate investor. I can hardly stomach the thought.

From what I understand, you can buy people’s “unwanted” diabetic strips for $3 or $4 bucks, and then resell them on eBay for $10 – $15.


First of all, I’ve listed a few things of my own on eBay. I cant tell you right now that listing items on eBay and managing an eBay store is complete and utter bullshit. It takes up too much of your time, there’s too much customer service, people complaining, wanting refunds, leaving negative feedback for no reason, etc.  I don’t know about you, but I value my time a whole lot more than what I might make if I sell a box of diabetic strips.


I know there’s a dying need for people to work for themselves and make a living without being under the supervision of someone else. And I’m sure there’s a market for SOMEONE to sell diabetic strips. BUT I’m seeing people that are in REAL ESTATE groups, who are trying to break into the business of creative real estate investing talking about selling diabetic strips! WHAT IN THE HELL????


You guy must’ve lost your minds.  Listen. It’s takes energy to be an entrepreneur.  It takes JUST AS MUCH energy and focus to sell real estate as it does to sell diabetic strips.  The only difference is that you’re most likely NOT going to make $200 when you sell a house.  You’re going to make 4 or 5 FIGURES $ $ $ $ $ $.  Why would you expend ANY of your energy, focus, time, or money, trying to make $20? or $100? Or even $200?


If you’re aspiring to become a real estate wholesaler, or travel down the very fulfilling path of a successful real estate investor, then there’s one piece of advice that I can offer.  DON’T TRY TO SELL DIABETIC STRIPS.  use your energy to focus on a business model that can be sustained in a positive frame of mind for the rest of your life. Strive to learn a business that has made NUMEROUS millionaires.

Remember that people will try to  make everything sound easy, intriguing the most desperate of people to buy into the dream.  Well, its NOT.  Selling diabetic strips isn’t easy, selling cars isn’t easy, selling information online isn’t easy, and selling houses isn’t easy.  So if you have to decide on which path to travel, choose the one that will be the most satisfying, the most prosperous, the most rewarding, the most profitable. I think you know which one I’m referring to.

Here’s how to get rich from Diabetic Strips:  STAY AWAY FROM THEM!



Spend your energy on something that will give you a REAL foundation of knowledge, and send you on your way to making REAL MONEY.

    I completely agree. How much time would it take to make 10k on those strips when you can use that time (less time) to make 10k on a deal.

    Real Estate investing is the best way to make money in my opinion. Many would agree.
    It is also a smart idea to have cash flow that you don't have to work at constantly.
    It is very smart to continue learning and applying what you learn, especially if you can create more income with a little work. I doesn't matter if it is in Real Estate, E-books, re-sales or chewing gum.

    OMFG very funny post. That being said Tracy, people are making an absolute killing on ebay and amazon trust me. However reselling used medical supplies would not be my niche. But I hear you about the draw backs. I love the seller calls . I get ones like that to man people are completely stupid wackos sometimes.

    Within two months of becoming a mobster, I had to close our Ebay and Amazon stores. Thanks for the sound advice as always boss.

    I am one of those former real estate invesotors. I have been working 30- 40 hours a week trying to break it into the real estate business. And only sold one property. After a huge dry spell I decided to try selling test strips. And I can easily say the effort I put into it is significantly less and has produced multiple sale conversions and have routinely made hundres to thousands of dollars a week.Not quite what you make in real estate but ROI’s are huge.

      Hey Carl, I just got into the business and would love to connect with you to learn some pointers. What would be the best way to get in contact with you?

    Most people who buy Diabetic Test Strips do not sell them on Ebay. I buy diabetic test strips and make a very good living at it. I have only one customer, a medical supply distributor in Florida. I make around 5000 a month which ain’t much but then I’ve only been doing this for 6 months so as my clients (people who I buy test strips from) grows through marketing so will my bottom line. Oh and I pay more than 3 or 4 dollars per box, depending on the brand I pay anywhere from 10 to 40 per box and sell them to my distributor for 35 to 90 per box.

    Whoever wrote this article doesn’t know a thing about my trade.
