Our D-history:

My daughter, *Rosie, was five years old when she was diagnosed on September 19, 2008, with Type I Diabetes. We started out on MDI, but in October 2010 we switched to a pump. We also added a Dexcom CGM in May of 2011. In February 2014 we changed to the Medtronic Enlite system- a pump and CGM all in one.

*Rosie is not her real name... I let her pick her own pseudonym for the blog!

15 carb Juicy Juice Deal

EDITED 11/18/12: This is one of my most visited posts, but sadly, Amazon no longer offers this "subscribe and save" deal on Juicy Juice.    I'll update again if I find a similar deal.  

 Juicy Juice 4oz boxes are one of those things that it seems nearly every diabetic child I know always has on hand.   (If you're not familiar with these, they are the toddler-sized juice boxes... perfect for a diabetic who is low and needs about 15 grams of carbohydrates to bring their blood sugar back up.)  Unfortunately, they are not the cheapest thing to have on hand, and we go through a lot of them.

Locally, I can buy an 8-pack of the 15 carb Juicy Juice boxes for around $3.99.  I generally wait until they are on sale if I can, but if we're out of juice boxes for school, I wind up paying that $3.99.  Ouch. 

Amazon sells the Juicy Juice Apple, 8-Count (Pack of 5) for $11.12, which breaks down to $2.22 per 9-pack.  Other flavors are the same price, but Rosie is partial to the apple. Five packages of the 8-packs at my local store would be $19.95.... so we're already saving money, right?  

It gets better.   Sign up for the "Subscribe and Save Program" to save 15%, and your total price drops to $9.45.  You can set it to automatically ship another box to you once a month, every other month, every six months... whatever you choose.  Or, you can simply cancel after the first shipment.. you're not obligated to continue.

AND... you don't need to pay shipping!   The juice boxes are eligible for Super Saver Shipping, so if you spend $25 in that transaction, they ship for free.  Or, you can join the free Amazon Mom program (you don't need to be a mom) and get free shipping any time with no minimum purchase.

I am a member of the Amazon Mom program, so we're paying $1.89 per 8-pack  and we receive free 2-day shipping... or $9.45 in total for 40 juice boxes.   I've been doing this deal for a couple of months now, and it works out great for us!     Check out more Works for Me Wednesday tips HERE!

Disclaimer: Obviously I have included some Amazon affiliate links here.  Nobody asked me to link up or post about this deal.  I would make a few pennies if you choose to purchase something through my links, but that's not why I've linked up... I truly feel that this is a great deal on a necessary d-supply, and I wanted to share!

  1. Thanks for sharing! I love a good deal! Besides diabetes is expensive, and ways to save are always appreciated!


Next to the doctor's office, I think some of the best diabetes tips I've ever gotten have come from discussions in the comment sections of diabetes blogs. :)
