And it has some sort of expiration date on it.
If one of your kids accidentally made an in-app purchase without your consent, you can get a refund from Apple pretty easily—but time is limited. Here's what you need to do.
After all the controversy over in-app purchases, Apple is letting you get refunds for a limited time. Obviously only unauthorized in-app purchases qualify, rather than simply buyer's remorse. To get the refund you'll need the order ID number, which will be in your receipt from Apple. Search for emails from firstname.lastname@example.org and find receipts with "In-App" Purchase listed in the "Type" field. You can also look in your iTunes store purchase history.
Once you have that order ID, head on over to Apple support and chose the email support option. Provide the order ID, tell Apple you'd like "Refund for In-App Purchases made by a minor," and you'll get your money back. You have until April 15, 2015 to request your refund.
Then, to prevent the problem from happening again, be sure to require password immediately for In-App purchases.
