At Hippo Hug, we are happy to offer a “Try Before You Buy” program to local Calgary shoppers. We understand that our Made in Canada weighted blankets are an investment in your sleep routine and we want you to be sure it is the solution for you before you commit.
If you are interested in trialling or borrowing a weighted blanket, we use your height and weight to get an approximate size and weight for the blanket to give you the best idea of what might work for you.
All weighted blankets are sent out with a washable cover so that you don’t have to be concerned about pets etc. in your home. All the covers are removed upon return and washed, the blankets are wiped with disinfectant to ensure they are ready to be loaned to the next person.
We also have a limited number of loaner weighted blankets. If we do not have a weighted blanket in an appropriate weight or size, you can choose to be added to our waitlist and we will contact you when one is available. Wait times should be no longer than two weeks as we find most people know within two weeks if the weighted blanket is working for them.
Borrowing a blanket requires a credit card pre-authorization or cash deposit for the full value, you can try the blanket for up to 4 weeks to see if it is the right solution/size/weight for you, most people have a good idea if it works after 3 or 4 nights. Then we will get in touch on a weekly basis to see how things are working for you.
Upon deciding it is the right fit for you will be able to order your weighted blanket and the rental feel will be waived. If you decide it is not for you the rental fee of $30 a week is applied and charged using the pre-authorization or subtracted from your cash deposit. This means if you have a blanket for a week your card will only be charged $30, you can choose to leave your credit card on file and have the fee charged weekly or upon return of the weighted blanket you have borrowed.
Any blanket kept longer than four weeks will be considered purchased and the credit card on file will be charged. Customers wishing to use cash or debit will have to place a deposit for the full purchase price of the blanket.
