Suggest to activate SIM first, then install. Good luck!

I have already registered for a FreeUP free monthly account, I already have my BYO device, and I just received my FreeUP SIM card in the mail today.
I've never swapped out a SIM card before, so here's my question. Do I install the SIM first, then activate it online, then power the phone back on? Or should I proceed in a different order?
Any and all helpful input would be most appreciated. Thanks in advance!

1) It appears to apply to the free plan-- but I doubt anyone knows for certain, since I doubt anyone has been on the free plan long enough to see it happen. (Plus, we know there are some things on the site that need to be updated in regards to the free plan......) I think, but am not certain, that Frasier1 received that bonus when started on the $10 plan (instead of the $20 plan mentioned).
2) I haven't. My guess is that the $1.99 will be applied on a per-SIM basis, if the system allows ordering multiple SIMs.
3) I had the same question, and could not locate it on the website dashboard. Load the app, and you'll find it there easy enough. From the app, I emailed the referral link to myself (there's a button to email an invitation) so that I can have it handy without the need to acquire someone's email address.
NOTE: the app requires logging in with your phone # and the PIN you entered when signing up, and does not remember login info. Awkward, especially since I opted for a new # to use as a spare line. I resorted to writing the FreeUp phone # on a piece of tape stuck to the back of my phone.

2) Has anyone ordered more than one sim at one go? If the sim is free, and shipping is $1.99, would ordering 10 sim's cost just $1.99? (I seem to remember that the system restricts you to ordering just one sim at a time?)
