I'll tell you right away: The big secret to how to save money on pregnancy tests is bulk pregnancy tests!
If you're trying to conceive you know that drugstore pregnancy tests don't come cheap. Even the lowest-priced tests at CVS still run about $5 each.
Since most of us aren't rational enough to try just one test just once per month (I've been there, I know!), that can amount to hundreds of dollars if it takes more than a few months to get pregnant!
Before I was pregnant with Haiden I was clued in that Dollar Tree dollar stores carry pregnancy tests for the low price of $1. I though that was reasonable, so that's where I purchased mine.
While it took just a short amount of time to have my bun in the oven, I can imagine that even Dollar Tree trips can get expensive when you're going there over and over again!
When we wanted to have a second baby, a friend told me that she bought these bulk pregnancy tests, and she paid less than $.25 each.
About bulk pregnancy tests:
After some research, I found a pack of them on a small website and paid a bit more than that. That was two years ago. Now, thankfully, the reputable and reliable Amazon now sells pregnancy tests in bulk for a great price. Really great: they're less than $.22 each!
So you know, these aren't your Clearblue Easy Digital Pregnancy Tests that literally tell you in words if you're pregnant or not. These are the same tests that your doctor's office uses to test for pregnancy.
Just like at the doctor's office, you'll have to pee in a cup and dip the test strip in, so I recommend getting some medicine cups or small paper cups. Using those means you can dispose everything easily after you've taken the test.
Remember, whether you're spending a quarter each on your bulk pregnancy tests or $15 for a pregnancy test, they're all testing for exactly the same chemical in you're urine. Some tests are just fancier and more deluxe than others.
Want to get pregnancy tests for cheap? A pack of 25 pregnancy tests will cost you $5.44, and shipping is free if you spend $25 or more! That's less than the usual cost of one pregnancy test from CVS or Walgreens!
Does 25 seem like you're going overboard? Grab a pack of 10 pregnancy tests for $3.95.
Want more? Go in with a friend on your purchase of bulk pregnancy tests and snag 50 pregnancy tests for $9.58.
If you're trying to conceive and you're tired of paying through the nose for ovulation predictors? You can also buy bulk ovulation predictors in lots of 20 or 50. A package of 50 ovulation predictor test strips runs just under $10!
