How much would it be to fix these scratches in the bumper? The car is a 2014 scion tC.

You should have gotten a small amount of touch up paint free with your car. Use that and just deal with the scratches, they won't be visible unless you get really close anyways.

You can also remove the bumper and have it completely repainted by a shop [Couple hundred bucks at most].

DIY. Sand, polish, wash, wax. that would save you money

You can always buy a new bumper and paint it yourself which is around $500 without shipping and without the paint

or

you can bring it to a shop which would be around $500 without labour and you might have to leave it there for a day or two

I import JDM vehicles into Canada, let me know if you're interested

Probably $200. I had a scratch like that which went deep into the primer. http://www.yelp.com/biz_photos/color-creation-auto-paint-and-bumper-repair-placentia?userid=f_-N1mH-c6uM9WF3M94abw#BPImqqGgqhvcvieJvwXnwA

Ask the used car manager at your local Toyota/Scion dealer who their "bumper repair guy" is. 
Guy we use at my spot here in ATL and he does a full bumper respray for $150.
Uses quality paint and his color match is always spot on.

Even if you repaint the whole bumper which is expensive, it's not worth. When it comes to reselling your car, someone with a good eye will know its been repainted. The color match will be difficult as well, it's not as easy to paintmatch a car as some people think it is.

Best bet, leave it be, it'snot worth it. However, if you're super anal like me...

1. Fill in the chip with touchup paint, let the paint sort of bubble over the regular paint as if you poured a little more milk in the cup that you should, but it doesn't overspill.
2. After it COMPLETELY dries, get the finest wetsand paper, it's sandpaper that you buy at the auto zones, etc. 
3. As your running water on the dried touchup paint that bumps above the normal paint, in one direction, slowly start rubbing that section with the wetsand.
4. Every few seconds, feel the bump and try to level it to the rest of the paint.
5. After you're happy with the blend, polish, then wax. Polish is different than wax. 

Peace
