If you’re in the market for a new heated blanket or looking for one to give as a gift this holiday season, Walmart has a great deal on a heated fleece throw.
This Biddeford plush heated electric throw costs $19.96, measures 62 inches by 50 inches and comes in eight colors and style options like plaid, snowflakes, reindeer and solid colors. It features three heat settings and has an automatic safety shutoff after 10 hours.
The blanket also comes with a 13-foot cord, so you can easily enjoy it even if your couch or bed is not near an outlet. It does not require special care — simply throw it in the washer on the gentle cycle and tumble dry it on low heat.
There are 108 reviews for the blanket on Walmart’s website, with an average of 3.5 stars out of 5. The majority of the reviews are five stars, with reviewers saying it’s hard to find a heated blanket for $20 or less. Some reviewers say the blanket gets warm, but not super hot, so if you’re looking for something that gets very hot, you may want to check out some other blankets.
One reviewer also said it works best when wrapped around you when you’re sitting on the couch or at your desk, so if you’re using it just as a blanket on your lap, you may not feel the heat as much.
Compared to the price of other, similar blankets, the Biddeford plush throws from Walmart are a pretty good deal.
The same blanket retails for $29 at Target, so Walmart’s price is already $10 lower. And, while it is a bit different, this other Biddeford blanket at Target is the same size and $59.99, a difference of $40.
