Amazon is now going after teens

If you place a bit more trust in your kids (or if you simply don't want to constantly approve or deny purchases), you can scrap the approval system altogether and opt instead to set specific spending limits. The kid then receives an invite and they choose their own username and password.

"The teen can also include a personalized note like, 'This is the book I need for class, '" the company said.

Under Amazon's new program, teenagers can log into the site using their own credentials.

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

Amazon Prime Student will be available to anyone with a.edu email address and feature the same free two-day shipping and video streaming services as the full-price version. Amazon notifies parents - either by text message or email - of any purchases. Teens get greater freedom and parents still get itemized notifications of orders.

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