1. 27% off: These insanely popular exercise bands
Working out at home can be a challenge, but these Fit Simplify resistance loop exercise bands are a great way to take things to the next level. Ideal for stretching, weight training and power weight programs, this 4.3-star rated set of five stretchy straps can be integrated into your everyday sweat sessions. With nearly 29,000 glowing reviews on the site, it gets big ups from shoppers, who say it’s an affordable, easy-to-store fitness tool. Normally priced at $13.95, these bands are on sale today for $10.44, so you’re saving $3.51 and essentially getting each strap for $2, which is an incredible deal.
2. Save $120+: Some of the best noise-canceling headphones we’ve ever tested
Bose really knocked it out of the park with its QuietComfort 35 Series II headphones, which are one of our current favorites here at Reviewed. Their audio quality is as good as it gets: They have a nifty feature referred to as ANC (that’s active noise-cancelation), which helps reduce ambient sound. These wireless headphones boast an impressive frequency range, work with Google Assistant and are surprisingly light and comfortable for long periods of time. In testing, we found that the WH-1000XM3s have very solid bass and that their battery life (20 hours!) is nothing to sneeze at. Right now, you can get them for one of the lowest prices we’ve ever seen of $228.96. This is a $121.04 price drop from their usual retail cost of $350.
3. Less than $15: This easy-to-use bike lock
If you’re one of the many jumping on the bike craze this summer, kudos. But that flashy new set of wheels is gonna need a little protection when you’re not showing it off around town, and that’s where the NDakter bike lock cable comes in handy. Although we haven’t yet tested it, this resilient lock cable has a 4.5-star rating and nearly 1,000 reviews on Amazon. “This is a very strong steel cord which would be extremely difficult to break and has a [five-number] combination lock, which can produce [thousands] of sequences that make it impossible to guess the combination,” raved one shopper of this theft protection device, which you can get on sale in pink or purple for $12.98—that’s $3 off its usual price of $15.98. For new cyclists especially, a lock like this is a must-have, and it’s even better when it’s on sale.
4. Take 30% off: Cuisinart cast-iron cookware
Making more meals at home and wish you had some new cast iron? This Deal of the Day on Cuisinart cookware is just what you’ve been waiting for. For today, August 11, only, you can save 30% on select pieces, like the Cuisinart 5.5-quart round cast-iron in cobalt or peony pink, once $89.99 and now on sale for $54.99 from $89.99. Looking for something slightly larger? Upgrade to the Cuisinart 7-quart cast-iron in the same two colors for $69.99—down $30 from the usual $99.99. While we haven’t used these pieces before, we’re big fans of the brand’s 5-Quart round covered casserole dish, including it in our picks of the best affordable Dutch ovens around because of its durability, stylishness and how easy it is to clean. Additionally, with more than 1,000 positive reviews between these items, we consider this cast-iron cookware to be an excellent option.

Outdoor movie nights can be a great way to spend time with loved ones while still adhering to social distancing best practices. The only catch? The best portable projectors can cost a small fortune.
