Lidl Shoppers Flock to Buy Winter Essential That Saves Money on Heating


Stay Warm and Save

In an effort to avoid turning up the heat, Lidl shoppers are rushing to buy a cosy gadget that is perfect for keeping warm this winter. Electric blankets are a great way to stay cozy without using your heating and can cost anywhere from £40 to £70. However, in the current Black Friday sales, some stores have slashed prices, offering great bargains.

Unbeatable Prices at Lidl

The Silentnight luxury heated throw, now priced at £24.99, is a popular choice among shoppers. Originally retailing at £40, this fleece-lined blanket is ideal for snuggling on the sofa or in bed. With nine different heat settings, you can choose the perfect temperature for you. Plus, it's machine washable and costs just 1p an hour to run, according to Silentnight. Shoppers on Facebook have raved about this gadget, with many considering it an essential item.

More Options Available

If you're willing to spend a little more, Lidl also offers the Silvercrest for £39.99. This blanket comes with a three-year warranty and costs just 4p an hour to run. It even has a built-in auto shut-off feature for added safety. Facebook users have described it as "cosy" and "super soft."

Act Fast

Both the Silentnight heated throw and the Silvercrest are only available in-store, so make sure to visit your nearest Lidl location. However, stock for the Silentnight throw is running low, so be quick! And before you make a purchase, check with your energy supplier to see if you are eligible for a free electric blanket.

Other Ways to Keep Warm

If you're looking for more cost-effective ways to stay warm this winter, consider getting a hot water bottle or draught-proofing your home. Seal your windows to prevent cold air from coming in or invest in a draught excluder. Additionally, loft insulation is a great way to keep heat from escaping and reduce your heating bill. You can find insulation at local builder merchants or retailers such as B&Q and Wickes.
