Getting the best deal on a winter coat usually means hitting the sales after the coldest days have passed, but if you've missed the sales season or can't wait that long, the
warmest women's winter coats under $100 on Amazon will keep you toasty in even sub-zero temperatures.
When looking for a coat online during the colder months, it may be tempting to grab the first puffer for a great price and hope for the best. Unfortunately, not all puffer jackets can guarantee warmth and they certainly can’t guarantee the quality matches the price tag. Getting a great deal can definitely make you love your coat more, but if it isn’t warm, it may feel like it’s betraying you every time you put it on. Honestly, the best way to find your next warm coat is to learn about the
different types of insulations — which mainly boils down to whether you want to opt for the superior warmth of down or an animal-friendly alternative — and then go through an exhausting amount of reviews.
But don’t worry, you won’t need to put in substantial hours searching for warmth because I've already done the heavy lifting for you. Each of these eight coats is not only less than $100 (and conveniently available on everyone's favorite e-retailer, Amazon), they're also keeping folks from Iceland to Alaska cozy even with relentless winds and oppressive temperatures.

According to one reviewer: "The coat is fairly lightweight for a puffer, and it's certainly warm enough for those freezing winter months. The hood is detachable, which I like. The fur around the hood is pretty, but again, I prefer to remove the hood altogether.
