So I went to Sam's Club today with the Hubby and upon coming out of the restroom there was this table that they occasionally have different vendors at, and we went over and what he had we BOTH fell in love with its a click activated heating pad and I'm in love! I used it all the way home (1 hour drive) and it stayed nice and hot the whole way home. They had a bundle for heating and cooling(pads are not click activated) the whole bundle I got was originally about $500 value but I got it for $85 with taxes. It's going to get a lot of use for sure! If you have a Sam's Club card and can afford it I don't know if they are doing it at your Sam's or not but if you Frequently use heating pads I would check it out and see if they are doing it at yours, it's called Soma Care.

I saw those at a BJ's Wholesale by me and didn't have the money to get them and I haven't seen them since. I wish I had gotten them. Enjoy and I hope they bring you lots of comfort and relief. {{{Hugs}}} 💕🙏🏻🌻😊

Just a tip with those click then boil ones... don't leave them crystallized or solid for any length of time. Boil them and return them to a liquid as soon as possible. The longer they are left as a solid the quicker they quit working properly. I have a few different sets and would wait until i had several before i boiled them, and now most of them don't reach a full liquid state so they don't get as hot or last as long. They also seem to get more air in them everytime i reuse them but i don't know if that's from the reaction or not boiling them soon enough.

Thank You Gotobef, I do boil them as soon as it looses heat. Thank You for the tips on the care, I will definitely take great care of these! Good thing is ,they also have a 5 year limited warranty

Chronic long term use of heating pads even on low heat can cause damage to the area deep into the tissue. Heat keeps areas of inflammation inflamed. If you notice skin discoloration in the area you apply the heat, you are damaging tissue and should toss the heating pad out.

Ice will cool inflamed areas down. You can use ice for 20 minutes 3 times daily minimum.
