More than 18,000 shoppers rave about this hot sleeper solution.

That transitional weather when the nights start to warm up can be kind of bittersweet.

Why is this a good deal? 💰

This blanket fluctuates in price pretty often, but $37 seems to be the sweet spot that it keeps coming back to. The true star of this deal, though, is in the on-page coupon. When applied, it brings the sale price down to just $27, marking the lowest it's been in quite some time.

Why do I need this? 🤔

The manufacturer says this blanket can reduce your body surface temperature by two to five degrees — and in case that doesn't sound like a lot, know that when it comes to your body, that's a world of difference. It can, in fact, be the difference between a blissful night and a sleepless one. Many Amazon shoppers attest to this. Bonus: For those familiar with the benefits of jade, this blanket also incorporates jade nanoparticles in the fabric to help skin maintain moisture.

But in addition to being a hot sleeper's dream come true, this blanket is extremely lightweight and hypoallergenic. And if the throw size isn't big enough for you, it comes in three larger sizes that make it perfect for doubling up in bed with someone else (no more stealing covers)!

What reviewers say 💬

Amazon shoppers have plenty to say about this blanket — and with over 18,000 perfect reviews, that's no surprise at all.

Pros 👍

First off, if you’re tired of waking up sweaty, this might be your late spring and summer sleeping solution.

“As blissful as the cold side of your pillow,” wrote one delighted user. “I get extremely overheated when I sleep but also enjoy the weight of a blanket on me. This blanket is the perfect solution for that. It is just heavy enough to provide some weight while I sleep. It’s like flipping your pillow over the cold side, except it’s an entire blanket! I love this thing, but I may have to get another one since my husky-mix loves it just as much as me!”

“This is the best blanket I have ever purchased,” wrote a rave reviewer. “I'm a hot sleeper, and with this blanket I stay comfortable without sweating during the night. It's perfect. ... I ordered two — one for me and one for my son.

Another shopper was even surprised to find that it's actually cool to the touch on one side. "I wanted a blanket for the summer because I can't sleep without one, but I get hot. This was perfect," the reviewer shared while calling it "a little bit of magic." "It does a great job wicking the heat away. And if you get too warm you can adjust the blanket and feel that cool feeling again. More importantly, though, I noticed I didn't wake up feeling overheated from the blanket.”

And if you're a homebody who's constantly lounging on the couch or refuses to get out of bed too early, this cooling blanket may just be a no-brainer. “I highly recommend this cooling blanket for anyone that spends a lot of time in bed or laid up on a couch in the warmer time of year,” wrote a doting mother. “My son was in an accident and is recuperating downstairs on the couch. He was complaining how hot it is being surrounded by cushions and pillows even though we have an air conditioner. ... He has not complained about being hot since this blanket came in!”

Cons 👎

Some shoppers didn't like that the blanket can't be tumble-dried or hung outside in the sun since this may cause shrinking and may affect its cooling abilities. "The big one will need to be hung over the staircase to dry," said one customer. "Inconvenient and irritating, but not nearly enough so for me to take off even one star."

Another critique among shoppers is that it's a bit on the thinner side. "The only downside to this blanket is that I wish it were softer and a little heavier," another reviewer wrote. "The top of the blanket is slick, so any blanket on top of it slides right off. But these cons nowhere near outweigh the pros. The blanket has been life-changing."
