            @Matt99: It's not a cover, I bought the all seasons bundle and a bamboo cover but I only use the bamboo blanket, gave the other one away it was too hot.

            •  

              @dealbreaker: The fabric that covers the beads is the bamboo part according to this review https://whatasleep.com.au/reviews/best-weighted-blanket/ I'm considering this bamboo blanket, but suspicious after getting a cooling bamboo mattress cover that is cool to the touch, but after 10 mins feels as hot as normal.

              •  

                @Matt99: the bamboo definitely conducts heat better to the glass beads, but once they are warm the blanket will feel warm. Similar to how if you touch something wooden it doesn't feel cold but if you touch metal it feels cold, both are at room temperature, but metal only feels cold because it conducts your heat away quickly. maybe try find a cheaper bamboo one but I do think the bamboo makes a difference. Bamboo sheet over a normal weighted blanked != Bamboo weighted blanket. Or it's all in my head. You could try something like https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07KPMPVLM

          $300 is a bit of a dealbreaker

    •  

      Ive been really curious how warm they got compared to my cheap bamboo weighted blanket I didn't really wan to take advantage of free returns how warm do you have your room for it to be cool using it?

      You wash it by hand.
      It will be destroyed by a washing machine. And a couple of kg of tiny glass beads in there will probably destroy your washing machine too.

    I got one of these about 12 months ago and now I can’t sleep without it.

    Haha, be careful you don’t get addicted like me. Now I’m buying the lower weight blankets to wean myself off.

    •  

      Why do you need to wean yourself? Why not just enjoy something you like?

      •  

        Because it is difficult to take with me when travelling.

        •  

          Also wouldn't be able to sleep with a normal one then lol

          Don't think it's a necessary item but seems like a bit of a following.

      In the same boat, would like to try one before purchasing.

      •  

        I already have one from the previous ALDI deal. I just want a spare and this price seems like a very good deal.

        •  

          How did you like the Aldi one? Did you get the 6kg or 9kg?

          • +1 vote

            @ccrap: I got the 6.8kg. I absolutely love it! I thought it would be too hot to use during the summer but I’m still using it now. It’s twice the price compared to this deal but it came with a cover.

      Wake me up before you go go!

    Charcoal 9kg out of stock for delivery. Let’s you add to cart but once you get to payment screen it takes you back to the home page saying the item from your cart was removed due to insufficient stock.

    Thanks OP. Bought one - click and collect.

    What if you don't like it? can you return?

      $10 better?
      Top and bottom cover: Polyester
      Filling: Polyester and silicate beads

      Edit: l
      Probably similar quality and materials, no mention of bamboo

    •  

      I have one from Kmart too. Hard to say the difference when I haven't tried this one but the Kmart one is bigger: 150 x 200cm (7kg only @Kmart) vs 121 x 182cm (6.8kg equivalent at Spotlight)

    Picked up a grey 6.8kg from Albert Park SA. Had about 10 off the 9kg in pink and a couple of 6.8kg. Heaps of the 3.45kg.

    So how do the weighted blankets work? Are you meant you use these additionally on top of your normal blanket? Or would this just be too hot? Or too heavy?

    Do you put a doona cover on these the same way you would a normal blanket? Or is it kinda used more as a throw?

    • +1 vote

      Also interested, probably don't need (like most stuff on here) but could get before sell out. Probably get bit less than half a years use out Of it in Qld.. imagine just put on top, or under empty quilt cover between that and sheet.

      Kogan one looks better

        Yeah Kogan things usually “look” ok until you actually receive them and start using them…

        •  

          Happy with The Xiaomi X1 fan
          The materials looked better ie bamboo and RRP 300$. Hard to know z hot in Qld anyway.

          Could have got one spotlight Mt Gravatt may sell out fast

          •  

            @G-rig: Xiaomi is a known brand, Ovela is Kogan's in house brand.

            •  

              @stublu: Yeah fair enough, not sure what can go wrong with a blanket but fair point, ha
              Hot anyway in QLD so stuff it.

              Ps. Never heard of Coo Elite either.. I doubt Myer/DJ sell it. It's all hit and miss just like Aldi electronics, down to the individual item I suppose.

    Thanks for this OP. I bought the smaller one for $46 a couple years ago and upgraded just now to the bigger 9kg. The 5kg is physically tiny and doesn’t really cover you, it’s sized for a child. It’s fine for putting over another blanket for the weight, but it’s really too small for an adult. Something to consider!

    Placed my order at 12:15am and it was cancelled + refunded just 30min later.

    Anybody else got theirs cancelled?

    •  

      Yes cancelled and refunded just now. Ordered at 0730 when there was in store stock. Clearly I needed to front up to the store to get the stock first.

    •  

      I ordered two at 1am, just got shipping confirmation.
      I got the small one in two colours though for a small child.

      •  

        Mine were both the 4.99kg ones. There were 5 grey at Box Hill when I ordered for C&C.

    •  

      I bought mine at about 8:30-9 today, no refund yet but the order still saying processing

      So yay me hopefully?

      Also forgot to mention using ShopBack gave $2.03 back so basically free shipping

        Which code did you use?

            @Chirse: Okay wow just cancelled my order after 6 hrs

      Placed mine at same time delivered and was also refunded today.

    Spotlight is such a shambles of a store, few months ago bought a throw online and paid shipping, they sent the wrong colour. Returned it as it was wrong colour but they would NOT refund shipping.

    Thought to give them another try in store today with one of these weighted blankets, they had a heap of them mixed in with the ones with the washable cover which are $70, i didn't know this until after paying.

    The checkout girl refunded the $70, then says yes this has happened heaps of times already today DURRR

    Can anyone comment as to whether weighed blankets are suitable for people who like a cool temperature bed?

    Summer is coming and I feel like I'm gonna burn like the nice lady in Terminator 2.

    •  

      Are you not in Aus? We are closer to summer being over than it coming..

      •  

        Maybe Bunnyburger feels that summer may go on a bit longer due to climate change and global warming.

        I hope not!

    Thanks OP. I got the 9kg and 5kg and will stack them given that I am around 140-150kg….

  •  

    Order cancelled as well :(

  •  

    Order cancelled here too but I decided to try again with the blankets and washable cover for $70 and will see what the fuss is about with these weighted blankets.

  •  

    Weighted blankets should not be used by people who snore or have sleep apnoea.

  •  

    Just got the cancellation email as well :( I ordered at 2:25am on the Saturday morning for delivery.

    I used one of the $10 codes as well - Can anyone confirm if they got their order fulfilled for delivery and used a $10 off code?

    Are they only cancelling the $10 off ones first?

    •  

      I used BIRTHDAY10 and my order has been shipped.

      •  

        What time did you order?

    •  

      I used a $10 code for click and collect but avoided the bday one in case they checked

      Picked up mine today without issue

  •  

    oh I got the refund too, just noticed (but was refunded within 4 hours) - got the notification on my phone today though.

  •  

    I ordered mine 2:30am the day the sale started and mine just got refunded. Didn't even get an email notification about it either. I'm a bit salty about it

    Those with Anxiety check out Michael Sealy on YouTube, good channel, from Brisbane.

  •  

    Mine got delivered today and I was really late to this deal. got the 9kg blanket, wow it's heavy!

    •  

      How heavy does it feel, about 9kg?

  •  

    Lol, my friend told me he got an email asking him to return it to the store BY HIMSELF because they want to cancel the order, after the collection of the blanket !!!

    •  

      Lol bit late
      Got lucky there with the 40% off voucher, got a sodaking gas canister for$12 instead of $20 (didn't ask for a swap, and didn't bring it)

    •  

      So was this a pricing error then?

      I got mine delivered… weighs a tonne after washing by hand.
