They also made a mistake with the allowance service:

" It omits the fact that last week Amazon also started a pocket money/allowance service. The idea's pretty simple: parents or guardians of those aged 13 to 17 can set up automatic credit card debits that appear as credit in their kids'a Amazon accounts."

It is not limited to children aged 13-17 (Amazon's restriction on that age range is simply that the parents have to be involved - Amazon just covering themselves).

Anyone can send an allowance to anyone aged over 13, including yourself. It is simply a repeated gift card that is credit to the recipients account automatically.
