'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.

  • JLab JBuds ANC 3 for $40 (save $20): These are some of my favorite budget earbuds with competitive noise cancellation and a marathon battery life. 
  • Beats Studio Buds for $80 (save $70): If you want an affordable pair of earbuds that can connect seamlessly into your Apple ecosystem, the Beats Studio Buds are on sale for 47% off. 
  • JBL Flip 5 for $90 (save $10): Take this waterproof portable speaker to the beach or play it at your next house party.

  • Nothing Ear (a) for $79 (save $20): These are hands-down my favorite earbuds with not-too-harsh noise cancellation, a long battery life, and pleasant sound. 

Stop losing your wallet, your keys, or your luggage. Strap an AirTag on it instead. AirTags are convenient for locating all the stuff that sneaks away from you. ZDNET's Sabrina Ortiz even puts one on her dog, in the rare case he runs away. 

AirTags use Bluetooth signals to connect to neighboring Apple devices in the Find My network. Then that location is reported back to you through your phone. 

I've run with the JLab JBuds ANC 3 in my ear and never had a problem with the earbuds falling out. Plus, the noise cancellation is top-notch for an under-$100 pair of earbuds, and the battery life feels endless. I've put the JBuds ANC 3 on a few of my best earbuds lists as a best budget pick, and this $20 discount makes them even better, in my opinion. 

Amazon just unveiled its new Echo Spot, which is like a smart alarm clock with Alexa integration. You can get the 2024 model at a discount ahead of Prime Day, at $25 off.

When is Amazon Prime Day 2024? 

Amazon's deals-palooza takes place this year on July 16 and 17. There are discounted prices on select tech, home, and wellness gadgets. It's a great time to make a buying decision on products you've been holding off purchasing, but it's also an opportune time for brands that don't actually change their prices, wave quote-unquote discounts above customer's heads, and tell customers that they're buying something for a lower price when they aren't. 

Are items really cheaper on Prime Day? 

Most items are substantially discounted on Prime Day, but sometimes brands will raise their prices and then discount them to inflate deals and discounts. Thankfully, as someone who regularly monitors product prices, we here at ZDNET know when some product discounts are true deals and when brands are blowing smoke to turn a profit. 

Are there different deals on Prime Day 2?

ZDNET's deal wizard, Kayla Solino, has the scoop on this. "The answer here is hard to say. It's a yes but also a no. Invite-only Prime deals -- or Lightning deals -- may be different each day. Amazon confirmed last month that new deals may surface as often as every five minutes on the site. But, as always, deals only last as long as Amazon decides, with lighting deals offering a countdown to their expiration and other deals' longevity depending on how fast products sell out (or don't). It's likely that as long as stock remains, many of the deals from Day 1 will remain live for Day 2, including deals on popular Amazon products such as Fire TVs, Kindles, Fire tablets, Echo devices, and more," she writes in her article. 

How did we choose these Prime Day deals?

ZDNET only writes about deals we want to buy -- devices and products we desire, need, or would recommend. Our experts looked for deals that were at least 20% off (or are hardly ever on sale), using established price comparison tools and trackers to determine whether the deal is actually on sale and how frequently it drops. 

We also looked over customer reviews to find out what matters to real people who already own and use the deals we're recommending. Our recommendations may also be based on our own testing -- in addition to extensive research and comparison shopping. The goal is to deliver the most accurate advice to help you shop smarter.
