How much was your weekly allowance back in the day when you were a kid? The average amount kids get today might blow your mind. According to a study released by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants, it's $30.  That's a huge increase just from 2016 when it was $17.  I guess the good economy is benefiting kids also. 

The report also reveals the average age receiving an allowance is 14. Also some parents still give to kids in their 20's.
