My mattress has a pillow top on both sides so I was afraid the pad may not fit, but it fits snug. It's not real cold at night yet but we put it on low/preheat and it warms the bed enough. I think it will be great this winter considering there are 5 settings for each side of the bed so we can both have our own temperature. Much cheaper than an electric blanket and does exactly what I need.

If you are taller than 5'4", you should look for a different mattress pad! The mattress pad its self is pretty well made, the problem comes when you attach the two electric lines to the pad. Instead of attaching in the middle of the pad, as everyone I have ever had does, this marvel of invention plugs in right in the middle of the foot well on both sides. This hard lump of plastic is pain. Both my wife and I have to sleep at angles, so that our feet don't rest on the connections. I can't wait for this thing to wear out, so I can buy another one, made by someone else! We have always bought Sunbeam in the past, should have stayed with them.
I recently bought this heated mattress pad. I have another brand/style on our bed at our vacation home that I bought several years ago, and I learned to love it. Having a heated pad is SOO much better than a heated blanket, which we had used for years before. So, I bought this one because I like the price savings on o.co. I've put it on my bed and used it for a week now and I LOVE it! It heats up so much faster than our other one, which you have to turn on 30 minutes before you get into bed. With this Beautyrest one, I can be in the bed, get cold at night (I know, weird since I live in Phoenix, AZ) and I can feel it start heating within 2 minutes. If you do turn it on a few minutes before hopping in, it will make your top sheets nice and toasty, too - it feels wonderful getting into bed with this mattress pad. It's also a great value at the price. So glad I bought it and would enthusiastically recommend to anyone!
We like the mattress pad, especially turning it on & heating the bed before bedtime. I would recommend this, but would let you know that the cords are not long enough for a king size bed. The controls end up on the floor, not long enough to loop through the headboard to be easily accessible. But on those "cold, windy, winter" nights - it's awesome! Get the LL Bean flannel sheets & your very snug.
I bought this mattress pad because, frankly, I was tired of listening to my wife complain about how cold the bed is when she climbs in (I like the room to be cold, so as a consequence, the bed was cold too). Also because I love my wife and want her to be comfortable in our home. Maybe I should've led with that one. Anyway, as a result, not only does she no longer complain about it, but I've been able to cool the air in the bedroom even more (saving on heating costs). We both really enjoy it, and the dual controls make finding a comfortable setting simple. We've never needed to have it set any higher than 2 despite fairly chilly temperatures lately. I was worried about feeling the wires or how it would affect my pillow top memory foam mattress comfort, but these worries were unfounded. Yes, if you feel around on the pad you'll be able to feel the wires, but I haven't felt them otherwise I'll echo other downsides in saying that I think the cord is a little too short, but we've been able to get by with what we have. Definitely don't hesitate to buy this mattress pad!
I love ot crawl into a nice, warm bed. I've used electric blankets for years but have never been totally comfortable with electric wires on top of me. This mattress pad fels like a regular mattress pad - there is no evidence of wires when laying on the pad. The pad gets toasty warm and I often have to turn it down to the lowest setting. Being one who is never warm enough; I have found the way to survive winter!

The king size mattress pad is terrific. It fits the mattress (pillowtopper) with plenty of extra material to tuck underneath. We found the coords were too short to fit under the bed and frame, but I ran them under the mattress instead and that worked fine. Someone on here suggested putting the pad on with the plugs at the top. Don't do that. The heat is warmer at your feet and cooler at your head, so if you put the plugs at the top, you'll cook and have cold feet. Just put it with the plug at your feet and get the cords set once and you'll be so happy! The mattress provides amazing warmth. We cannot feel the wires at all! I sleep warm, so I put it on high to pre-warm the bed, then shut it off when I go to sleep. My husband sleeps with his side on 2 or 3 and is toasty warm all night. Great if you've got sore joints or muscles, or if you just don't like a cold bed.
With the exception that one of the sockets for the controller having been assembled backwards, it is wonderful. If you are not handy with electrical wiring and tools, you probably would have sent it back, the socket has slots so you can't plug it in wrong...but the slots were in upside-down, so I had to pry it apart and turn them over, I had the right tools so I didnt break the plastic, I could have ruined it and voided the warranty, but I didnt want the hassle of repacking it and sending it back . If it had been bought from a local store I would not have fixed it myself. But now it is very good. I turn it on an hour before bedtime and off when I get into bed. It doesnt get the bed hot, which at first I though was not good, but after a few weeks, I know that if you keep it on after going to bed, you are dying of heat in a couple of hours. You should only use it to preheat the bed, DONT leave it on after that. I dont have the heat on in my room. If you cant warm up when you get into bed, cold feet, cold butt, this is the pperfect solution.
This product is great! My husband and I both suffer from cold feet...we can turn this on, and WOW..NO MORE cold feet!! Warm the bed to toasty, then turn it down to sleep!! A wonderful product in many way!!!! No more crawling into a cold bed sheet! at night or anytime!! I suffer from back problems, and this is such a relief for me with the warmth. I would highly recommend it over any electric blanket!! Heat does rise..so it makes sense!!

Purchased this as a gift for daughter & son-in-law who upsized their bed to King Size. Fit on thicker mattress very well, stays on mattress without pulling up at the corners. Works beautifully. Son-in-law has back problems and this adds needed warmth to problem area. Large selection of settings.

Nicely sewn, comfortable heated pad; I can't feel the heating elements in the pad, as you can with some. There are only 5 heat level selections on the clickers, plus pre-heat. (Pre-heat takes the level up to 5 for an hour, then drops it back to the preset lower level). There are nights that 1 is a bit too low for me, but 2 is a bit too warm. The cords to the controls are a bit short to work efficiently in our bedroom; another foot or two would have helped quite a bit. Nevertheless, this is a comfortable, reliable, heated mattress pad that stays in place well.
We purchased this King Heated Mattress Pad, put it on the bed, and the first time we attempted to use it, it worked for 15 minutes, then all the lights on one of the controls started to blink. We went through all the troubleshooting recommended; unplug, replug, switch non-working controller to other side, plug working controller into side that had issues, etc. Nothing fixed the problem. The silver lining to this trouble is that Overstock.com customer service was excellent. One phone call, and the entire issue was resolved with a return label, and a quick refund once the product got back to them. I'd not hesitate to shop with them again, I just wouldn't buy or recommend this product.
My old electric pad died when I washed it, so I bought this Beautyrest pad as a replacement. Both my husband and I are very happy with it. One thing I really like is the "layout" of the cords and controls. On my old one, the electric cord went from the spot where it plugged into the pad, then to one control, then to the other control, then to the plugin to the wall. That meant if I pulled too hard on my control, my hubby's control got pulled my way too. This Beautyrest is different. Each control is completely separate. Each has it's own spot to plug into the pad, and it's own plug in to the wall(and it's own control). That's a great design feature. The controls are easy to operate in the middle of the night when you're half asleep. It has 5 settings, and the pad changes temp very quickly when I change the setting. I highly recommend this pad!
