You need a non t mobile/ att number to get all these done.
1. Port number A in and go to Cricket buy an iPhone SE for $49.99. Online

2. Go to Costco for T-Mobile BYOD Offer, port number B to T-Mobile, you will get $200 shop card from Costco and $100 prepaid card from T-Mobile, can stick with T-Mobile Freeline promotion as wells. Instore only exp Dec 3rd

3. Go to Target buy tons of Apple GC, you will get $20 Target GC for every $100 Apple GC, and apply these GC into your Apple account before you buy iPhone, $2000 Max per Apple account. Online or Instore exp Nov 28th

4. Go to Apple.com, buy the T-Mobile iPhone 12 Pro Max and trade in iPhone SE, the trade in value is $210 and you will get another $150 prepaid card from T-Mobile. Need pre-activate to qualify the $150 rebate and it may take Apple 3-4 weeks to ship the new iPhone, so you can still use your own device until you turn on the iPhone. Online

Most of these promotions limited to 4 per account, so

Out of Pocket Cost for 4 iPhone 12 Pro Max:
Target Gift Card: $2000*2=$4000 Online or Instore
T-Mobile bill for 3 month: $140*3= $520 Costco Instore
4 Cricket iPhone SE for 2 lines/ account including bill: $190*2=$380 Online
iPhone 12 Pro Max: $1099-1000 gift card =$99*4=$396 Online
Total: $5296 and you will get 4 iPhone 12 Pro Max 128GB
Apple will delivery your iPhone around 3-4 weeks after you place the order

All the Rebates and Trade in Credits:
Costco BYOD GC:
$200*4= $800 Pending
3 month after you open the line
T-Mobile Port in offer:
$100*4=$400 Approved Dec.16th
1 month after you port the number
Cricket Downgrade:
Change your plan to the $30 plan. You will get the full $30 prorated credit if you downgrade within the first day of activation.
$30*4=$120
Apple iPhone SE Trade in Credit:
$210*4= $840 Approved Dec.16th
after you shipped the phone back
Apple T-Mobile Rebate:
$150*4= $600 Pending
after apple delivery the phone and 2-4 weeks after you submitted the rebate
Target Free $20 GC :
$20*40=$800 Instant
Total: $3560

So the total cost without tax including 3 month cellphone bill:
$5296-3440=$1736/4=$434+cost of the extra number and tax
That's based on you will not use the phone service just leave there alone for three month.

If you actully will use T-Mobile for 3 month, let's say $40/mo, the cost for a iPhone 12 Pro Max is under $320.

Also you can buy extra number on eBay for about $5-10. Or red pocket has $5/month for the first month so it's easy to get extra numbers for port in.

Currently, I finished all the steps except to buy the iPhone SE.

Red Pocket $5/mo for extra number:

Also Target has Apple Gift Card buy $100 get $20. So you will get more discount if you buy the iPhone using the apple gift card

Costco BYOD for $200
https://slickdeals.net/share/iphone_app/t/14602288

T-Mobile $100 Rebate for Port In

https://slickdeals.net/share/iphone_app/t/14604172

This deal makes max profit if you do all the steps on Nov.25th, otherwise you will miss the $200 Costco BYOD deal.

Also the number you ported to Cricket doesn't haven to be the number you ported to T-Mobile. You can actually do the step 1 later, if you don't plan to port the same number.

Doesn't it take a while to complete a port? Would be hard to do 2 ports of the same number in the same day.

I'm lost. You can buy iPhone with Apple gift card? Also, doesn't T-mobile trade in requires unlocked device, not locked to Cricket?
