Nice one OP! For those who really want to work the system, the easiest way is to have a Google Voice number. You can play the field and use any promotions that come along and whatever phone number you get assigned as a new number just point your Google voice number to it. with the Google Voice app on your phone, your caller ID is always the number you prefer. Need more? University of YouTube is open 24/7.
Yes blows losing that $15 in a matter of minutes. However the "Buy 3 months get 3 months free" is still there. So this has become $10/month for 8GB of data EACH month. (For 6 months) And it comes with 5G coverage for free.

Not quite as good as an hour ago but still a darn good deal at $10/month.

I am notoriously slow on the uptake, so decided to finally try to figure out the GV shuffle. So I have a Google Voice number "A" that I use only on rare occasions, albeit it is linked to my current Mint mobile account number "B". I do not want to lose my "B" number because it is established on all my other Cable TV, work, etc accounts/services/etc. The GV "A" number is not important.

So, in order to "keep" my "B" number but still be able to take advantage of the Mint mobile promotions for "new accounts", I would need to port out my "B" (Mint) number to GV (at the end of my current term). There will be a one-time $20 fee charged by the mobile provider. And, at the same time, I will port my GV "A" number for a $3 fee to Mint mobile as a "new" number, and from that point on that number will be disposable. After each Mint term is up, I would just get a new "A" number while the "B" number (which is my "permanent" number) will live on at GV as the actual GV number.

If I would not be so dependent on my current "B" number at Mint, I could just let it expire (and save $23) and get a different Mint number activated with each promotion and link it to the GV "A" number? .

Yes, it is a kit for a new customer. Either you need to get a new phone number or port-in number from other carriers.

$120/12 months = $10 per month for 3GB data
$45/6 months = $7.50 per month for 8GB data

If you don't mind searching for another plan in 6 months, the math says this deal is better.

How long do you have to activate this service from order date?

Edit: Nevermind, found this in the FAQ:

Mint Mobile SIM cards can be activated up to 45 days after you receive your SIM.

I think it used to be 90 days based on some of the answers on BestBuy

Best buy is offering returns on current purchases until January, in case you can't activate in time. I checked with customer service chat on this item, and they verified it can be returned in January if you don't use it.

Port your number to google voice. Use these deals as you please after by linking the random number to google voice. You can't port within mint but if your main number is on gvoice you can use the promo plans over and over

I don't think you can port-in from mint mobile's phone number. I recommend you to follow the suggestion.
