If the winter chill has finally come for you and you feel like the blankets you have at home just aren’t cutting it, Costco has the perfect alternative: Berkshire Life heated throws. The reversible blankets, on sale at the big-box retailer, come with tons of cozy features: gray and teal colorways with white faux fur, a removable extra-long cord for when you wash it (yes, it’s machine washable), hidden wires, four different heat settings, and an automatic shut off after four hours.

“I have purchased heated throws for years, and no one has ever been able to design one that works properly, and that has all of the features I want. This one has it all,” reads a review, adding: “And on the highest setting, I can really feel the heat, something that was difficult to do with most other throws.”

The best part? It’s not just for humans. Other reviewers noted how their pets love the product, too. “Watch out if you have a cat, they’ll claim it for their own,” reads a comment, while another said: “Everyone in our house loves this blanket! Especially my pups!”

For humans and pets, the throws are great for anyone looking to stay warm and toasty without having to turn up the heat in the entire house, especially if finding the ideal temperature for your home is a constant budget vs. comfort struggle. 

The Costco heated throws are sold out online but in-store availability will depend on what your local Costco offers. (At some Costco locations, the heated throws appear to have been marked down, so you’ll want to check pricing if you head out to the store in search of yours.)

Because of a recent recall for a similar product, you’ll want to make sure the track number range on your Berkshire Life heated throw is not listed on the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission page. 

If scooping up the blanket at Costco isn’t an option for you (or your store is out of stock), the good news is that Amazon offers a comparable alternative with a SUNNY HEAT electric blanket, on sale at the time of publish for $29.99, 40% off its original pricing. The SUNNY HEAT blanket comes in 14 different colors and four different size options so you can find your perfect fit and style.
