'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.

Stack Social

If you've been thinking about trying out Xbox's subscription gaming service Game Pass, now is a great time to get started: Stack Social is offering a deal to get three months of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate access for Xbox consoles, PCs, and mobile devices for just $40 -- down from its usual price of $51, saving you 21%. 

Game Pass Ultimate allows you to play over 100 games across both PC and Xbox consoles, including popular titles like Starfield, Forza Motorsport, Grand Theft Auto, Gears of War, Halo, and many more. New games are added all the time, including Xbox Game Studios titles the day they release. 

This discount is also stackable -- you can buy up to five codes to build a 15-month subscription at a discount. The deal is available for both new and current users, and works in any country that supports Ultimate Game Pass. 

The catch is that if you don't want to become a regular subscriber and pay $17 a month after the first three discounted months, you'll have to cancel your subscription within your Microsoft account before it auto-renews.
