I'm curious if there are any GPU rental services, VM-based or otherwise, which you can rent for short periods of time and just do whatever you want with? Where you can pay for a few hours up-front, and then SSH into the box to run some mining scripts or test out new GPU code. Most everything I've found is for month long contracts, and I'm really just interested in something convenient where I can rent time on demand.

Does such a service exist, at roughly the associated mining cost? i.e. I'd pay roughly how much that same machine would earn mining on its own.

I don't think any exist for just a few hours, there's no investment in that.

Amazon seems to do it, but they use nVidia Teslas, which are useless for mining :/

Amazon will do it, but its way to costly and not effective at all.

I have been looking into offering something like this, cheaper then amazon, but there would likely be a premium, the same income as mining means that there is no incentive to do so :p

VPS, shared, dedicated hosting at: electronstorm.ca. No bitcoin payment for that yet, but bitcoins possible for general IT, and mining/GPGPU rigs. PM for details.
