This small betta therm one only heats the water a couple degrees above room temperature so you'll need a thermometr and a stable room temp!
Seems like there are bad reviews on that one, let us know how it works out! I use the tetra ones in my tanks, no issues so far and the temp is always at 78F.

Most likely you have a 3.4 gallon if you got it from petco

I have HAGEN mini elite heaters in my pet keepers. They seem to work well. I also have a tera 50 watt one but it can barely heat up 3 gallons

Do you think a 7.5 watt heater could heat a three gallon tank or no, it is one of those bowl heaters it said it could heat 2 to 5 gallons

I had one of those [b]ZOO MED bowl heaters, meant for 1-3 gallons. I put it in my 1 gallon, with Flirt, under rocks and all. and she dang near got boiled. Went into shock, but I saved her. she ended up with temp swb out of the deal. but she's 100% now, and happy. I just wanted to warn about them.

I might be safe because I don't think I am going to get the zoo med ones for the 3 gallon

Yours might be faulty, I have used the 50w in my 10g and it worked wonderfully. I've also used it in the 0.8g in a pinch and it stayed stable.

The Elite filter, what does yours look like? I have two here but they seem way to strong for bettas. I bought them for my boys but never could use them.

A heaters ability to maintain a good temp is also dependant on the temp of the room the tank is in. If you have a room that stays relatively warm than a lower watt heater would probably manage to keep up. However if the room gets cold, it might only bring the temp up a few degrees and then break before its time due to having to work to hard.
