Need Suggestions for prepaid phones + data plans for temporary Square credit card processing (USA only)

I am helping out with a non profit organization and we are trying to setup multiple (10+) Square credit card processing stations for as little cost as possible.

I am running into problems trying to find the cheapest combination of prepaid Android phones along with data only plans(Wifi is unavailable). We have all the square readers we need, just need to purchase phones and data for a weekend event. I dont expect any of the devices will use over 200 MB on cell network. This is strictly for processing credit cards.

This is located in a major metropolitan area (Seattle), so pretty much any carrier will work.
I was expecting to use Tracfones (multiple devices available for $10-15 each, plus a cheap $10 data plan) However I just realized that each device requires basic service costing $10 per month in addition.) This brings per device cost to 30-35 each, with pretty underspect'ed (4.0, 4.1) devices.

Can anyone here suggest a combination of cheap/prepaid burner androids that will work with a temporary data plan? Under $35/40 for all said and done, and available in 10+ quantities.

Timeline to have this complete and operational is a little over a week.

Secondary idea: Cheapest possible tablets that will quality for tmobile 200 MB for life. Given the lack of recurring cost, anyone have suggestions for $60 tablets that will qualify?
