Did you know that you could make money from your unused diabetic supplies?
Often times, people are left with extra diabetic supplies when doctors switch them from one brand of testing to another, or if a family member who was diabetic passed away. Now, instead of throwing those supplies away, you can make money off of them instead.
CashforDiabetics.com is a website that offers to pay diabetics for their unused boxes of test strips. The strips must be factory sealed, and unexpired.
How much the site pays depends on the life of the test strips. Payout is considerably higher for supplies that still have 8 or more months until expiration. They will buy supplies with 1 – 7 months until expiration for 50% less. They will also buy supplies that are not available for retail sale in the US.
According to their website, payment will take 2 – 5 business days to receive, and shipping is free. To learn more, visit www.CashforDiabetics.com.

Back in the old days, say 5 or 10 years ago, most folks over the age of 65 DID NOT do their personal banking and shopping through ecommerce. Instead, they did business through the snail mail, receiving paper bank statements, mailing paper tax returns, and having 1099’s sent to their home. And they sent checks, letters, and forms out through the mail.
Fast forward to today, many folks, even those in their 80’s and 90’s, have practically stopped using snail mail all together. They pay their household bills online, order stuff from Amazon, and even sign their tax returns electronically.
So when you are appointed as a guardian or PR to an estate for one of these tech oriented seniors, how do you get ALL of the information you need to do your job? How do you learn about all the online services they use, and acquire logins and access to those many accounts?
And, do you have the legal authority to do so?
This new digital world is making it increasingly difficult to determine all of the online services a client may use. Where do you even start? And, how do you acquire the skills to actually determine what is being done online?
This is another area we find ourselves struggling with. What about you? How do you locate this information for you clients? Are there services you use, or do you have a savvy tech person who helps with this?
