    I’ve often answered surveys for — and have gotten subscriptions to magazines (Inc. and Money, which I love), and things like camera cases and purses. Plus they let you donate part of your rewards to sites like Kiva. Interesting surveys, and I only take part in ones when I have time, and if they interest me.

    Hi, I am a teenager who isn’t really able to leave to home for work due to my current family situation. I’ve never had a job before but I really need some money for upcoming college (very soon, I am of legal working age) and I was thinking about doing some of these surveys jobs. However, I don’t know very much about taxes… Will working for Survey Savvy or Mindfield cost myself of the rest of my family money?
