1. Save $10: This popular UV flashlight
A dog may be man and woman's best friend, but sometimes, they have accidents. And if you don't catch them right away, you might not even know they're there. This convenient Bolder UV flashlight from the same brand that makes our best-valued regular flashlight, the Anker Bolder LC40 ($22.98) makes it easier to spot such messes thanks to its 380 nanometer (nm) wavelength, which is designed to illuminate stains so you can easily clean them up. And right now, it's on sale, falling from $25.99 to $15.99 when you check off the $10 coupon code beneath the price. With 4.7 stars from more than 600 Amazon customers, this UV model can "[light' up ... stains like a Christmas tree," according to one particularly happy shopper. Some say it's much brighter than most other UV flashlights they have tried, while others claim to use it for purposes beyond pet mishap detection, such as locating tomato hornworms or water leaks in the walls. Compact, lightweight and rechargeable via USB, this flashlight can be stored in a glovebox or tucked away on a shelf in the garage or basement.
2. 27% off: This No. 1 best-selling rowing machine
The last time this best-selling rowing machine went on sale at the end of 2020, our readers went bananas for it, and it wasn't even as good a deal as it is now. Today, the Sunny Health & Fitness squat assist row-n-ride trainer, regularly $129, is down to $94.53, or 27% off it usual price. (Note that you can get it for even less at QVC!) To help you work out those glutes and get your body into tip-tope shape for the summer, this trainer comes with online access to a video that will get you started on your health and wellness journey. You can follow along with your progress via the digital monitor on the unit that tracks time, calories, squat count and more. Adjust the resistance as you get stronger, with each of the three included bands offering about 22 pounds of resistance. The saddle and handlebars are also adjustable, so you can customize the depth of your squat. One happy customer was wowed when she lost 2 inches off her hips after adding this machine to her workout regimen. Another reported getting a "serious workout" form it, even without using the tension bands. With more than 19,000 reviews on Amazon, there's really no ifs, ands or butts about its effectiveness. A word of caution, however: Experts say these machines may not be the best choice for long-term use, however, as it may promote poor biomechanics or affect your form when doing regular, non-machine squats.
3. Less than $50: This top-rated wood-burning Fire Pit

It "exceeded my expectations," wrote one pleased customer. Made of alloy steel, the fire pit, which comes with a spark screen and a poker, is also light enough that you can easily carry it around at just over 12 pounds.
4. Down $10: This breezy patio set
Since we'll soon be spending lots more time outside, enjoying the beautiful breeze, sunshine and all-around amazing weather, it would be wise to invest in some outdoor furniture upon which to lounge. This Homall 4-piece outdoor patio furniture set, which is down about $10 from its usual $159.99 at $149.99, is made of all-weather rattan wicker with a strong steel frame.

5. A 28% savings: This juice-catching cutting board
If you love to cook or bake, you understand the importance of having a good cutting board on hand. After all, there's a lot more to them than just providing a flat surface on which you can chop ingredients or roll out dough. The Reviewed team put several cutting boards to the test and found that the 17.5-inch by 13-inch Epicurean Gourmet series cutting board, which is currently reduced from $63 to $45.16, is the best for using with juicy foods. That means cutting citrus-y fruits or extra-squishy tomatoes, for example, will be a cinch, as will resting your meat. The Epicurean will expertly capture excess liquids so that they don't drip down onto your countertops, or worse, the floor. In fact, the grooves in this board were able to hold the most liquid of any board we tried—about a half-cup worth! The fact that it's also lightweight, easy to store and dishwasher-safe, plus didn't scratch with repeated knife use, refused to stain and never warped in the dishwasher, makes it a solid, all-around choice to add to your kitchen.
