'ZDNet Recommends': What exactly does it mean?

ZDNet's recommendations are based on many hours of testing, research, and comparison shopping. We gather data from the best available sources, including vendor and retailer listings as well as other relevant and independent reviews sites. And we pore over customer reviews to find out what matters to real people who already own and use the products and services we’re assessing.

When you click through from our site to a retailer and buy a product or service, we may earn affiliate commissions. This helps support our work, but does not affect what we cover or how, and it does not affect the price you pay. Neither ZDNet nor the author are compensated for these independent reviews. Indeed, we follow strict guidelines that ensure our editorial content is never influenced by advertisers.

ZDNet's editorial team writes on behalf of you, our reader. Our goal is to deliver the most accurate information and the most knowledgeable advice possible in order to help you make smarter buying decisions on tech gear and a wide array of products and services. Our editors thoroughly review and fact-check every article to ensure that our content meets the highest standards. If we have made an error or published misleading information, we will correct or clarify the article. If you see inaccuracies in our content, please report the mistake via this form.


Seven last-minute Amazon deals Primed for Christmas deliveries

Shop these exclusive Amazon Prime deals and they'll arrive at your doorsteps as soon as tomorrow.
Written by June Wan, Tech Editor on

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas, which means you only have days to get those presents delivered, wrapped, and tucked under the tree. If you're still on square one, here's a guide that will help you save Christmas and your money as well.

Notorious for speedy-shipping times and wide selections of gadgets and gizmos, Amazon Prime members can take advantage of some thrifty sales this week -- all with promised deliveries of tomorrow or the day after. Here's a breakdown of how Prime benefits can help you in the clutch.

  • With a Prime membership or an order of $25 or more of eligible items, Amazon will offer two-day, one-day, or same-day delivery depending on your address.
  • In select US cities, Prime members can shop groceries and produce from the online Whole Foods Market pantry, and have it delivered within two hours.
  • You can sign up for a free 30-day trial (can cancel at any time) to take advantage of the faster deliveries this week.

Now, onto the sweet deals.


At the lowest of the season, you can snag a pair of what is arguably the best truly wireless earbuds in the market: Apple's AirPods Pro. With active noise-cancellation, superb audio quality that hits the right notes in the lows, mids, and highs, and seamless integration with iPhones, the AirPods Pro make for an excellent holiday gift. It's currently discounted to $179 and Amazon promises a delivery before Christmas.
