    I went to Dexcoms site today to order a skin for the receiver... $10
    Go to checkout and they want a min. $15 shipping fee?????
    Has anyone ordered one by phone from Dexcom and gotten a better shipping deal?
    I called our rep. but she was no help.


    Nevermind, I'm impatient so I called myself. If anyone is interested, you can order the skins by phone from Dexcom and get ground shipping for $5. Much better, so I ordered 2. :D

    Wow! Maybe Sis had the skin shipped with the rest of her order; maybe she ordered it from Edgepark? We have one skin and she did mention they are $20. It protects Dex some. It does not protect the Dex from water, as we found out and you may be better off putting Dex in a baggie. At home, we put Dex in her clear pump pack. Skin protects back of Dex from spills; plastic on front of pack protects front of Dex. When she takes it to school in her purse, use a baggie.

    I didn't buy it for protection, I bought it so Sean could have a change from the black receiver when he wants. Just like the camo and red skins he has for his pump and the groovy patches for his sites. :)
    I like to give him as much "fun" with this as possible because everything else diabetes SUCKS. :p

    But thanks for the info. ;)

    Customer Service said they don't have the website set up for ground shipping (I'm assuming because they don't want that option for ppl buying sensors).

    The cost of the skins are $10 each or a pack of 4 for $28. I would have bought the 4 pack but they don't give the option of replacing the pink skin with another color. The colors are blue, silver, pink and black.
    So we have a blue and silver on the way.

    I've not been lucky enough to get many freebies. We did get the red Animas skin from the CDE, but not until after we had bought the camo. :rolleyes:

    Our Dex rep gave us a blue skin for free when we asked if she had any. But it has long since worn out on the button area and ripped some at the bottom where the charger goes. I asked her if she had another but she was out :(

    I was thinking about ordering the 4 pack, even if I never use the pink one it is still a better price overall. And there may be a little girl with a Dex on here or FB I could give it to if I ever get around to ordering.

    I also griped about the shipping and emailed cust service and they said the same thing. They could do $5 ground if I called in the order. I asked if I could just have it included with my sensors and they said they couldn't because it was different than ordering sensors. Not sure what the deal is other than one is a store purchase and the other is a RX purchase that for us goes through Edgepark.
