2. 123,286 boxes of Swedish Fish.

3. Pay off your student loan debt about eight times over.

(Based on the average debt of $29,400 per student in 2013.)

5. A year of rent on this beach house in Hawaii.

7. A 2015 Bentley Continental GT Speed.

Oh yeah.

8. About 35,049 Chipotle burritos.

9. PLUS 136,300 sides of guacamole, which costs $1.80 extra.

10. Clean water for life for over 9,800 people in the developing world.

11. 2,271 years of a Netflix subscription.
