*Rolls eyes with a chuckle* No, it's the email addy linked to your grocery account so they have your address already. Hence how they can deliver your groceries

Your free cholesterol kit has been requested.

I assume you mean how do you use them, rather than how do they get them to you. If so, you use a small finger stick to drip some blood out onto a testing slip, which after a period of time will show you your cholesterol level against a graded list.

You can get the same kits from Boots for about £6-9 as I recall.
