Amazon gives teens shopping independence

Amazon introduces a new discounted Prime subscription price for students

The new service should also make life a little easier for parents - a key demographic for Amazon - allowing them to create separate Amazon log-ins for their kids that they can monitor. Teens can also be assigned pre-set spending limits per order as an alternative to having orders reviewed.

Parents who aren't pleased with their child's purchase have up to 30 minutes to cancel an order, according to an Amazon spokeswoman.

Setting up a teen account on Amazon requires input from the parent.

In addition to the shipping, you get access to Prime Video, Music, Photos, Reading, and Twitch Prime (meaning you can sub to your favorite streamer once a month, which is pretty great).

Amazon launched Households in 2015 in order to install more control over the ways people were sharing their Prime accounts with friends and family, and this is an evolution of that move.

The requests are sent via text or email, and include a message from the teen - for example: "please please buy this for me Mom!" - and parents can approve or reject it instantly.

The system works by giving teens their own login and password to use with Amazon. This will give kids more freedom while still providing them with itemized notifications of orders.

The new Amazon accounts are for teens between the ages of 13 and 17.

Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN) today unveiled a new way for teens to shop for the items they want all by themselves - with parents' approval, of course.

Their credit card information will be hidden on the teen accounts, as will their purchase and browsing histories. Amazon is trying to replicate that feeling for the digital generation.

For the time being, however, the feature is more about letting teens shop a bit more independently. Everyone knows most of the benefits from the subscription service by now, but the thing that I hear that keeps some people away is the cost.
