'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.


Groceries are also cheaper on Amazon Prime Day. Here's how

Amazon Prime Day is in full swing, and while everyone is shopping for the latest tech and fashion, here's a category with some great deals you might have missed: Groceries.

If Amazon isn't your go-to for groceries, it may be time to take another look. Prime members can save up to 50% on grocery delivery online during Prime Day, with deals on anything from produce to cleaning supplies

While I rely on bulk savings from stores like Costco for groceries and household items, Amazon Fresh is my first choice when we face an empty pack of baby wipes or watch the last drop of milk fall into the morning cereal. I can order my groceries as my kids go to bed and have them at my doorstep by the time I wake up the next day without having to leave my house.

During Prime Day, I found myself out of baby wipes and other household items. While doing my weekly Amazon Fresh order, I was pleasantly surprised by all the deals available on grocery items. Prime members can save $20 off orders over $100 during Prime Day using the code FRESHSAVE20 at checkout until midnight July 12. Once redeemed, they will receive a second discount code for a second $20 off their next order over $100, valid during August. 

Amazon is also featuring a variety of $1 deals items. These include Lunchables, in case you need to stock up for your kids in summer camp, as well as buy one, get one free offers. In total, I saved $59.01 on a $195 order, which was certainly nice.

The cheapest way to buy groceries from Amazon is to get them from Amazon Fresh rather than the Whole Foods Market section of the Amazon app or website. Amazon Fresh is an Amazon grocery store that offers same-day delivery for Prime members. I've found most of the same brands I find at my local grocery stores, with few exceptions and few price differences -- some slightly cheaper, some slightly more expensive.
