Aldi fans are going wild for the £35 Specialbuy that Martin Lewis says can keep you warm for just 3p a day

ALDI fans are going wild for the £35 Specialbuy that Martin Lewis says can keep you warm for just 3p a day.

Energy bills have rocketed making it harder for households to keep the heating on, but the money mogul has recommended a cheap product that can help.

And shoppers have jumped at the chance to take on the heating alternative.

On Facebook page Extreme Couponing and Bargains UK one user shared the £35 product that they'd managed to snag from the budget supermarket.

"If you only need to be warm in one room, then bingo," the shopper said as they showed off the Aldi Specialbuy.

It's a wearable heated throw that essentially means you don't have to reach to turn up the thermostat on colder evenings.

And as energy bills have seen a 54% increase since the price cap rise at the beginning of the month, Martin Lewis and his MoneySavingExpert team think the product will do the trick to help keep costs down.

The limit rose from £1,277 to £1,971 for a year – an increase of £693 for the average household, though the exact cost can vary depending on your use.

And these aren't the only price rises the UK has faced – food costs are also rocketing due to inflation, meaning some people are forced to make choices between heating or eating.

Martin's team had included the device on a list of budget alternatives pulled together with the aim to heat the human not the home.

The experts explained that plugging the device into the mains to charge for an hour will cost you 3p – or the equivalent of £1.37 a week.

But shoppers had already clocked this saving as they commented on the Facebook post.

It has now racked up thousands of comments from shoppers keen to snap it up as they rave over the product and its energy saving potential.

"I think I would live in it," one said, and "this is a game changer" said another, while a third branded it "a must have."

The product is no longer available to buy online at Aldi, but shoppers have spotted some stock still in stores – so you could try your luck and pick up the bargain in-person.

Use Aldi's store locator to find your closest branch – but it might be worth calling up before hand to check there's enough to go round to avoid a wasted trip.

You should also have a shop around as other retailers might have the same energy saving device with a cheaper price tag.

Despite shoppers raving over Aldi's version, you can pick up an electric heated hoodie blanket for just £25 at the Online Home Shop for example – making it £10 cheaper than the supermarket's.

It'll work in the same way and should use roughly the same amount of energy according to Martin's team's calculations.
