How long after expiration date are strips still good? I heard if strips are
stored in good place and not opened, you can go a couple more months.

The FDA has guidance on how to best use a glucometer here: http://www.fda.gov/MedicalDevices/Safety/Aler... They include a statement to not use text strips past their expiration date. You might call the company who makes the strips and ask them about the expiration date. I think Kimberly is right; probably the accuracy is not guaranteed after the expiration date. ~Lynn @Glucerna
