Parents who aren't pleased with their child's purchase have up to 30 minutes to cancel an order, according to an Amazon spokeswoman. Parents will receive a text or email with information about the order and the option to approve. We've listened to families and have built a great experience for both teens and parents.

On the other end of the spectrum, the move could be seen as an effort to indoctrinate teens and get them addicted to Amazon early, before they become loyal to a competitor.

Amazon has a new service specifically targeted at teens, allowing teenagers aged 13 to 17 to create their own account with a separate login, connected to their parents' account.

Rational Advisors LLC Buys New Holdings in Walgreens Boots Alliance, Inc. (WBA)
This repurchase authorization allows the pharmacy operator to repurchase up to 5.9% of its shares through open market purchases. The sale was disclosed in a filing with the Securities & Exchange Commission, which can be accessed through the SEC website .


Teens using the service will also be able to include a personal note when making a purchase (for example: "This is a book I need for class"). With Prime Music, members receive ad-free access to more than two million songs and thousands of playlists and stations at no additional cost to their membership. However, teens won't be completely free to do as they please, since parents will be alerted about purchases and will have to approve transactions. Parents can then allow or deny the attempt with a simple "Y" or "N" reply to the automated message. Teens can also be assigned pre-set spending limits per order as an alternative to having orders reviewed.

Setting up a teen account on Amazon requires input from the parent. Parents will also choose a payment method and shipping addresses their teen can use when buying items. Parents will not be charged for adding their teen to their account, Amazon said.
