So here is the official breakdown:
I ended up spending $70.12 for different products I had to buy/try out.
I have already received a $10 Exxon gift card and then I will also be getting the $500 Visa card.
If my math is correct that is a 439.88 return on the 5 or 6 hours I spent doing this. I'd say $73/hour isn't too shabby. Plus I know my credit score, I have 25 downloaded songs in my iTunes, I've learned a little German and I have some killer tights.
