Twin Pack of Emergency Blankets - £1 at Poundland

Found 9th Mar 2013
With heavy snow predicted again especially for the south these are ideal for the boot of the car. Its something you hope you would never have to use but at 50p each its a no-brainer to have them handy.

Size: 1m x 2m.

These have always been this price. I've still got the same ones from 3yrs ago. And they're still the same size (unlike the Tetley one cup tea bags, crisps etc which seem to have got smaller or have less in the pack). So not really a deal.

You used the term "no-brainer"

But they haven't always been in stock.

HOT.

What difference is an emergency blanket to a normal blanket?

Does it cope better in stressful unpredicted events?

It reflects radiant heat (rather than trapping warm air) and is obviously a lot lighter and smaller than a normal blanket when folded. The obvious downside is that you will sound like a crisp packet.

It's like someone thought of a random word and just stuck emergency in front of it, and hey presto, a new thing.

It could have easily been emergency dog, emergency stones or emergency curtains.

I get mine from the cabin on long haul flights (after asking permission of course).

We keep real blankets in the car....

Emergency biscuits. Emergency martin.

Crikey, I better stock up with all this HEAVY snow expected....all 2cm of it if we're lucky

COLD.

These are good. also useful for keeping your beer cold at festivals.

We gonna get like 0.5cm of snow, its not the apocalypse, never less for a quid, you can't complain.

but considering these thing in the right conditions could save your life, it wouldn't be something you'll wanna scrimp on & go buy a good quality one instead.

I thought thats what they were for?

I have to say the military ones are much thicker and stronger, or at least they were 10 years back when I last obtained some, but these are still a good thing to have if out and about. When camping one of these always stays in my rucksack, as I know I don't have a warm house to return to. As long as you aren't wet one of these can seriously increase your body temperature in the cold.

These will come in handy for a night out in Newcastle!!

Well, it's not really cold is it? It's plus 200 degrees

Also, just because you got one a few years back and it hasn't become cheaper since then doesn't mean (i) everyone else knows about them, or (ii) that its not a good deal. It was a good price then and it's still a good price now. Thus worth posting, as evidenced by the votes.

I find it a bit hard that someone would vote cold on emergency blankets in a time when the country is about to experience some very cold weather.

It's pretty hard to be out of walking distance for help in this overcrowded country, especially in the south!
Where would you require these? Maybe hiking in the wilds of Scotland in which case, don't buy a pair of poundland heat blankets!

Like I said in the OP its a good idea to have some of these in the boot of the car for that 'just in case' scenario. While they may not be military grade they will still reflect the heat thats been lost from you're body back to where its needed.

I suspect you've never strayed far from the M25, there are still plenty of places in the UK where if you don't have a map and compass you can end up walking miles without seeing anything. Not everywhere has a phone signal, can't rely on Google maps. These are a lightweight safety precaution, just in case you get in trouble. We got caught in a thunder storm on the wrong side of the orm a few years back, was glad I had some of these on me as the kids would have been freezing otherwise.

Of course the townies just drive round it and look out of the windows, so could just turn up the heating.

Excellent I'll be able to make a coat out of them to match my tinfoil hat.

Well Done, OP - got to 272 despite the haters

FoX5 - I voted cold as you failed to understand the concept of HotUKDeals - the clue is in he web sites title...
Just because the weather may be cold does not make a product that sells throughout the year for the same price a deal...
Using the same principle I could post a box of matches or a scarf & gloves combo and state it's a deal "'cos i'll be cold next week"...
Don't understand how this got so hot - it's not a deal, if anything it's a reminder...

It's available, it's cheap (unless anyone can tell me where I can get one for much less than 50p?) so it's a deal heat added

FWIW I'm not a hater - I just fail to see how this is a deal when it's always been this price. This is HotUKdeals, not "post stuff that may help to keep you warm when it's cold out". They sell hot water bottles, chemical hand warmers & matches (candles too) in PoundLand, are these to be considered deals as well?
