With the program, teens can also access select Amazon Prime benefits if you have an Amazon Prime account.

The new service, available using Amazon's app, is an attempt to give teens a bit more autonomy, the company said. 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. "We've listened to families and have built a great experience for both teens and parents". The For Teens login is only made possible if the parent agrees, and parents ultimately retain the power over their teen's shopping habits, including settings spending limits and having the ability to deny an order. The parent can approve the order by text or they can visit their orders page to review it in more detail.

The new Prime Student plan grants subscribers the same benefits as your normal Amazon Prime subscription, but will cost students a more manageable $5.49 per month-or $49 per year-after a six month free trial. When they find something they want to buy, that item is sent to the parent for approval via text or email. That option then takes teens to write a short note to send to their parents about the purchase, where they can say "I need these sneakers", or "I ran out of granola bars". Also, they can choose to skip the approval step all together and set pre-approved spending limits, offering teens full freedom. "Parents receive itemized notifications for every order and can cancel and return any item in accordance with Amazon's policies".

To get started, Teens and parents can go to amazon.com/forteens and click on the "Teens Start Here" option. Customer reviews, 1-Click shopping, personalized recommendations, Prime, Fulfillment by Amazon, AWS, Kindle Direct Publishing, Kindle, Fire tablets, Fire TV, Amazon Echo, and Alexa are some of the products and services pioneered by Amazon.
