The new way for teens to shop on Amazon. Amazon recently introduced a new way for teens age 13 – 17 to shop with Amazon, and for parents to monitor and approve, or disapprove, their purchases. As Amazon describes it, “Teens shop on their own. Parents stay in the know.” The teen purchasing primer Here’s how the program works: Your teen invites the parent or the parent invites the teen (up to four teens in the family) to link accounts, and, once accepted, the parent provides: The teen’s contact information – full name, mobile number or email address, and birthdate What payment method the teen’s order will be billed to Where orders will be shipped How the parent would like to review purchases: either with a “Y” text reply, or an email notification and an approval from the Amazon account.

Even though it seems that the holiday shopping season starts earlier and earlier each year, Black Friday and Cyber Monday are still ‘the’ days that brands and marketers prep for and go by when assessing their holiday sales. While the analysis will go on for a while, we’ve found a few early results that show that so far, things are looking good for 2017.

Over 64 million shoppers shopped both online and in stores, compared to 58 million who shopped online only, and the 51 million who shopped solely in-store. Consumers spent an average of $335 between Thanksgiving and Cyber Monday. Shoppers who bought both online and at brick and mortar stores spent an average of $82 more than online only shoppers. 75% of spending was on gifts.
