Snuggle up with this top-rated heated blanket — it's nearly 50% off right now

One of the best remedies for cold and gloomy winter nights is snuggling up with a warm blanket. While any old throw will keep you warm, heated blankets are a must-have for those truly bone-chilling days or when you can't be bothered to put on another layer of clothing. And with over 1,000 five-star ratings, this Bedsure electric throw blanket has to be one of the most popular options on Amazon. Another popular feature? It's nearly 50% off!

The ultra-warm blanket features a ribbed texture and luxe fleece material that one shopper described as being "so soft that it's great without the heating but even cozier with it! The throw measures 50 by 60 inches, so it's big enough to swaddle two people. It comes with an LED controller that lets you choose your heating preferences and there are six heat levels and four timer settings to choose from. And it comes with an auto shut-off feature, so you never have to worry about falling asleep with it on.

This top-rated blankie can reach 104 degrees within 35 minutes when on the maximum setting. Plus, according to the folks at Bedsure, wrapping up in the cozy accessory, instead of increasing the thermostat, you can save 68–90% a year on your heating bill (so you can spend your savings on something a little more fun!).

“I love this electric blanket. It allows you to increase or reduce the temperature by number instead of just high, medium, low setting and same with time setting,” wrote one shopper. “It's so soft and lightweight. We keep it on our sectional all year long.”

“As snug as a bug in a rug,” said another. “I hate being cold, and this saved me this past winter. I would put it in bed and turn it on a few minutes before I got in. Heats up pretty quickly and has temperature controls and a timer you can set. The best! Kept my ice-cold feet toasty all winter.”

While a third raved: “With or without the heat, this blanket keeps me sooooo warm and cozy. I would recommend everyone who is cold to purchase one. Especially those who sleep alone. LOL. I am going to purchase another one for my daughter.”

You can shop the throw blanket in a few different colors, including red, navy and brown, but the dark gray version is where you'll find the steepest discount — a whopping 48% off. Normally the blanket would set you back $84, but you can score it right now for just $42.49. And if you’re in the market for an electric blanket that will heat your entire bed, there are four bed-sized options as well, ranging from twin to king.
