Amazon's inaugural Big Spring Sale has come to an end, and while the event boasted tens of thousands of deals, a select few items rose above the rest, garnering the most attention from CNET readers. By digging into our data (which contains no personal information, don't worry), we've been able to see which deals our readers tended to gravitate toward and have highlighted the winning products (in terms of purchase volume) below. 

While it's not super surprising to see Apple products like AirPods rank high, or Big Spring Sale deals under $25 proving popular, there are a few items in the mix you might not have expected. Some have already returned to full price, but others are still up for grabs -- for now. 


Since we all have a ton of devices to plug in, and this five-outlet surge protector is just $10, it's maybe not a surprise it tops our list in terms of popularity. It's also got four USB ports so it's super versatile. This dropped as low as $9 earlier in the sale, but 50% off is still a great bargain.
