Amazon has introduced a convenient way for teens ages 13 through 17 years old to shop on Amazon. With their own login, teens can use the Amazon App anytime and anywhere they want. Parents can approve all orders or set pre-approved spending limits – offering teens a customized amount of autonomy that can change and grow as they do. Learn more and sign-up at amazon.com/forteens.
I have a daughter that loves to shop and there have been times in the past when she has ordered things without me knowing and that tends to be a big problem, especially when she has used my account without permission. Now, teens can have their own Amazon login, and I can be assured that orders she makes will have to be approved by me!
This is free for parents and teens. It is a great way to provide independence for your own teen. Even better though, if you’re an Amazon Prime member you can share many benefits with your teen, including Free Two-Day Shipping, Prime Video and Twitch Prime at no additional cost. And best of all for a parent, you stay informed and if you need to make adjustments you can!
You are offering freedom and independence for your teen but you get to set some boundaries. Once your teen makes an order it is charged to the payment method you set and shipped to an address that you selected for your teen.
This also allows you to be able to have some great conversations about money and more.
If you feel comfortable with your teen spending money you can even choose to skip the approval step and set spending limits, offering teens the freedom to place orders up to a certain dollar amount on their own. Even better, you can get itemized notifications for every order and can cancel and return any item in accordance with Amazon’s policies.
In talking to my own teenager she loves that the program gives her the freedom to use Amazon with her own login and without me looming over her shoulder. She has already ordered one item and after ordering it I received a text and could either allow the order to go through or not. She also loves that she can use my Prime membership as she wants to have her items immediately and if not that, she wants it in at least 2 days!

This is a great new program that I am so glad to have found. I highly encourage all teens and their parents to learn more and sign-up at amazon.com/forteens.
