2 months ago I took the GMAT and scored 660.
Then, I enrolled myself on Knewton's 50 points improvement guarantee online course.
Yesterday I took the GMAT again and scored 700!

I'm very happy because 700 was my target.
I also know that Knewton helped me improve my verbal score a lot.

So, this is my dilemma.
Although I am qualified to a 350 dollars money back guarantee, I still recognize that Knewton was a good course that helped me get where I wanted...

What would you do if you were me?

(Don't forget that I sill need to pay for TOEFL and all admissions fees)

I think you should. Presumably part of the reason you chose Knewton was the 50 point guarantee, so why not capitalize on it? Also, the guarantee is for hard score increases, not "course satisfaction," so the fact that you liked the course has no bearing, in my estimation, on whether or not you ought to pursue a refund.

I would recommend that you read the fine print well if you do choose to ask for the refund.
Some courses require that you take every exercise to validate that you did not just goof around and wasted your time.
