Save big on amazing hidden deals, from stick vacs to earbuds and more.

Amazon overstock items: neutrogena skin cream / satin pillowcases / earbuds / stick vacuum
Understocked on household, beauty and tech must-haves? Amazon's overstock page might just have the problem-solvers you're looking for. (Amazon)

Every week, we spend hours combing the internet for the best products at the lowest prices, from the biggest brand names to the most viral items out there. But there's one thing that makes a deal even better: The product solves a problem. You probably already know that Amazon is loaded with items that meet both criteria. What you might not know is that Amazon has a secret outlet section with awesome overstock items that are an even bigger bargain during their Big Spring Sale. It's packed with everything you need, but we've selected some of our favorite items that can make your life a little bit easier — all at a discount!

Fire fearers, rejoice! This electric lighter not only spares you from having to deal with large flames, it's also rechargeable and flexible enough to fit inside those tall, narrow candle holders. 

"This is a great tool for lighting candles, gas logs, etc.," wrote a fan. "For an 'older' person, it’s much easier to light than the liquid-filled lighters, safer to store and no open flame flaring out at the end. Very easy to keep charged. I think I’ve bought a set of these for everyone I know by now."

Feeling a little tense? There's no need to shell out for a professional masseuse when you have this handy knot-kneader at the ready. Its U-shaped design allows you to place it wherever you could use some relief, and the fact that it's heated makes the whole experience feel downright luxurious. 

"Heaven sent!" exclaimed an excited reviewer. "If you suffer from neck or back pain, look no further — I haven’t stopped using this since it was delivered. This is like the massage chairs at a nail salon, but 100 times better because you can target the areas you need ... I will definitely be buying more to give as gifts."

Never run out of places to plug in with this three-sided outlet extender and surge protector. With six outlets and three USB ports (including one USB-C), the whole family will be able to keep their devices juiced up without fighting over the one free socket. Plus, it's got an adjustable LED night light built right in. 

"These work very well and the night light is a plus," raved a repeat buyer. "This is the second one of the same brand that I have purchased. ... The USB ports get used the most, so everyone can charge all of their devices. The night light also has adjustable light levels. The installation was very easy and straightforward."

Dyson who? This affordable stick vac offers up to 55 minutes of runtime and boasts a patented rubber brush bar designed to lift stubborn pet hair and dirt from all floor types. Since it's cordless, you won't have to worry about tripping over cables, and it also transforms into a handheld for reaching higher surfaces. 

"I am disabled, so finding a vacuum with power that is truly lightweight and easy to use was hard," shared a shopper. "I am really glad that I found this one ... It is not too heavy. It does not scratch my hardwoods. The charge seems to last longer than I thought it would. The canister is very easy to empty."

Plus, they're sweat-proof and waterproof, making them ideal for workouts. 

"Everything about these earbuds is excellent," raved a verified listener. "I ordered three sets, one for myself and two for family members. My daughter says she loves the way they stay in her ears, much better than the Apple AirPods. Sound quality is awesome. The charging case has a magnetic grip to keep the earbuds in place while charging. So easy to use and pair with an iPod, or a smartphone!"

Win at lunch with this bento box, a game-changer for busy adults. Five compartments and two sauce containers mean you'll always have spots for tasty pasta, chicken, salads and more. Plus, its sleek design features leak-proof compartments so you don't have to worry about soy sauce destroying your bag. It's also microwave-, dishwasher- and freezer-safe.

This fan, who provided pics, wrote, "It is perfect to take to work, and it has several compartments to organize lunch and snacks. It's ideal for use in the microwave and is also easy to wash. The lunch box comes with its own cutlery and two additional small containers ideal for dressings or sauces. I have 10-hour workdays and I bring all my food there."

You don't have to have a huge household to accumulate a lot of shoes. And while we often put away off-season clothes, everything from boots to sandals is usually with us year-round. Now they can be in one location with this 5-tier organizer, which keeps everything in one place and looks great doing it. 

Shoppers love that you don't need to set aside hours to put it together. "Sturdy construction, easy to assemble," said one. "I did it in under an hour. Looks nice and it's so much better than shoes all over the floor."

Our under-eyes have a tendency of letting the world know just how much sleep we didn't get the night before, and if yours could use a little refresh, this lightweight gel-cream might be just the ticket. It's formulated with hyaluronic acid to hydrate and smooth skin for a plumper, more-awake look, and since it's noncomedogenic, it won't clog pores. Oh, and it's over 50% off!

"As I've aged, my under-eye area has become really dry and somewhat puffy in the morning," wrote a satisfied shopper. "I'm in my early 60s and have tried a number of products, both expensive and drug store versions. For me, this product gives immediate results, blends quickly and is non-greasy, so it doesn't negatively impact the makeup I apply."
