@Al Stevens- thanks for the info about the allowance program! That will be very helpful as someone with a child approaching her “tween” years. I did note that the Amazon Allowance program was not available until June of 2015 and Evan’s original post here was in 2012- obviously well before this option became available.
Now if only there was a way to transfer multiple Starbucks Gift Cards to Amazon! For some reason I seem to have an abundance.
