Amazon Ordered to Refund Parents for Kids’ In-App Purchases

Kids racked up high bills on games and in-app purchases

Technology is a big part of our children’s lives. Most kids today have a device whether it’s a tablet, e-reader, or a smartphone.
When the kids are playing their games, they’ll bug me every five minutes for some coins or characters. $5.99 for 100 coins? I don’t think so!

Now I’ve been pretty diligent about not giving my kids the passwords to online stores where you can buy games. I’ve also been careful about allowing them to download “free” games, you know the ones that have those expensive in-app purchases?
