'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.

This puzzle offers cash rewards and is just $30 through Dec. 17.


There's something exciting and electrifying about playing a game or taking part in a contest with major cash rewards. If you know anyone who loves this type of thing, then we might have the perfect holiday gift to get them this season. The 2 Million Dollar Puzzle is available for just $30, or in a 2-pack for $50, or even a 10-pack for $100. Be sure to order by Dec. 7 so it arrives by Christmas.

This 500-piece jigsaw puzzle promises winnings to anyone who completes it. There are no losers, which helps add an extra layer of security against this gift turning into a dud of an experience for whoever you share it with. Once they complete the puzzle, which creates the image of a giant QR code, they then scan the code and receive winnings ranging anywhere from $1 to $1,000,000. There will be two total puzzles in this contest with million-dollar payouts, so while the chances are slim, they do exist. 

This fun and unique holiday gift first and foremost provides whoever you give it to with a fun and engaging activity that can take as long as putting together a 500-piece QR code might take. Once they cross the finish line, not only will they get that amazing puzzle gratification, but likely prize money. 

Don't miss your chance to grab this unique, interactive, and fun holiday gift while it's available for a limited-time discount, which lasts until Dec. 17, but you must order by Dec. 7 at 11:59 p.m. PT to ensure on-time holiday delivery.
