Default Using a heated mattress pad to turn down the heat more at night

I just reprogrammed my thermostat to drop down to 50F while I'm away at work each day. It stays at 70F when I am at home and awake, and its currently programmed to stay at 60F during the night when I am sleeping. I am seriously considering and wanting to drop it down to 50F during the night to see the additional energy savings. However, I am pretty sure that this is going to be fairly cool. I am trying it tonight for the first time, so we shall see how it goes over. Does any one have any tips/ideas? I'm obviously going to load up on the blankets and dress more warmly than normal.

In the event that it is too cool, I am also looking for input on heated mattress pads. I know a few people here have mentioned using them. How do you recommend using them? Do you have any suggestions on brand or any features to look for?
