As we head into summer, it's the perfect opportunity to give your bedding a serious refresh. If your comforter is looking a little flat (or if the stains it accumulated are too stubborn to come out in the wash) consider this the sign you needed to get a new one — and we found an incredible hidden deal you won't want to miss.
How's this for a dreamy price: The top-rated Meritlife Comforter is currently marked down 51% off, plus an additional half off on top of that. After all those markdowns, it's just $17 for a queen, down from the original price of $70.
Plus, if you have Amazon Prime, you’ll get free shipping, of course. Not yet a member? No problem. You can sign up for your free 30-day trial here. (And even those without Prime get free shipping on orders of $25 or more).
Sure, the discount is only in the white version, but who cares? It'll be hidden under a duvet cover, anyway. Don't let the price fool you, either: It's made to last. The exterior is made of soft, brushed microfiber, while the inside is composed of whole-piece polyfill fabric, making it extraordinarily fluffy. The fill also won't redistribute throughout the night, so you won't wake up with a cover that's suspiciously empty on one side and overfull on the other.
It's easy to care for, too — just chuck it in the wash.
One first-time comforter user raved about how soft this was: "This is the first duvet I’ve ever used in my life as I’ve always had a quilt on my bed. This thing is soooo light and puffy and soft and comfortable. I don’t see myself ever going back to quilts. I’m in love! It really is lightweight but it still keeps me warm. It feels like I’m sleeping in a cloud."
Another added: "I wasn’t expecting it so be such great quality! For the price it’s great. When unboxing looked pretty thin but once it was out, it puffed up and then I threw it in the washer and it got even fluffier!!!"
In short, you'll like it so much, you just might buy three more like this thrilled shopper: "We are a big fan of this comforter! It is very light, warm, and soft. Even in the summertime, it works! We love it so much that we purchased this down alternative three times for three different beds!"
The Vatican has said it has completed the sale of the luxury London building at the centre of an ongoing corruption trial - after taking an estimated hit of around £120m (€140m). In a statement issued on Friday, the Vatican said the building was sold for £186m to Boston-based private investment firm Bain Capital. The statement said that losses were covered by Vatican reserve funds, and stressed that donations from the faithful in a papal fund known as Peter's Pence had not been used.
However, it did not rule out re-introducing restrictive measures if the situation deteriorates. Consumer watchdog Rospotrebnadzor said it was "suspending previously introduced restrictions, including the mask regime, a ban on public catering at night, and a number of other measures". It said the dynamics of the virus were consistent with global trends and 93% of confirmed cases were mild or asymptomatic.
