Cheap Heated Electric Mattress Pads
Valid Reasons to Buy a Low Cost Heated Mattress Pad?
What's your reason for wanting one of the low-price heated electric mattress pads? From time to time we hear: I want a good cheap electric mattress cover because:
- It’s for a guest room and will be used only once or twice per year -- possibly a valid reason.
- It’s for camping -- possibly a valid reason.
- I need it for only one season -- probably not a valid reason.
- I want to save on my heating bill but don’t have much money -- probably not a valid reason.
- I just like a deal -- probably not a valid reason.
- They’re all basically alike. I just want to keep warm -- probably not a valid reason.
- Doesn’t matter what it looks like as it’ll be under a bottom sheet anyway -- probably not a valid reason.
Safety Caution about Cheap Electric Mattress Pads
First of all, a caution: Be very hesitant to buy a used electric mattress pad, especially without an extremely thorough inspection. It could be unsafe to use.
How To Find a Low Priced Warming Mattress Pad
As is common with so many seasonal items, heating mattress pad prices, especially the loss-leader ultra-basic ones vary from week to week. You will have to look around. Look for the Sunbeam and Biddeford products. Sunbeam also sells under their SlumberRest and Imperial brands and Biddeford also sells under their Cannon, Sealy and Delightful Nights brands.
But you don’t have to drive all over town! You can shop from your computer at web stores and have your choice delivered to your doorstep. Most web stores offer free shipping on electric mattress pads and their merchant service provider will guarantee secured credit card information. You can see a list of retailers selling warming mattress pads from each major manufacturer at our Retailers page.
