The Mint Mobile special promo is apparently going to continue through the end of the year-- $20 for 3 months. Today, ebates is again doubling their Mint cashback offer to $20, which covers all but taxes. (It's been running at $10, and may or may not stay at that level in the near future.)

(I'm sorry this is late again-- I didn't see it until this evening. The offer is available until close to midnight Pacific time.)

Details copied from the Hot Deals thread when this appeared around Black Friday.

How do I transfer (port) my phone number to Mint Mobile?
To transfer—or port—your phone number during activation, you’ll need to authorize the release of your number to Mint Mobile. To do this, you will need:

Your account number from your former carrier. Your account number can be found on your billing statement, or acquired by contacting your provider’s customer service department.
The corresponding password, pass code or PIN code number.
The zip code associated with the account.
Please remember that your phone number transfer can take up to 48 hours to complete. If you have any questions regarding your port, email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Once the number has been successfully transferred, we will we send you an SMS and confirmation email. "

Ebates has a Cyber Monday promo doubling their recent cashback offers for a lot of stores, including Mint. If you're comfortable with ebates....
The cashback offer is $20 for that $20 SIM. A code for free shipping is included in the Ebates offer. You'll pay taxes and fees (about $3.46 for me) after (hopefully) getting the cash back.
Caveats: This assumes the cash back comes through okay. You must purchase from the link on Ebates after signing up. (Search 'Mint Mobile', & pick the one that says $20 cash back + free shipping-- click on the free shipping coupon to copy it to your clipboard.

And, if you're like me and never got around to the ebates Super Silver offer on CellNuvo, start there. Currently 10,400 silver after you load the ebates app, and make a purchase through the app. If you purchase $25 total, you'll get a $10 cashback bonus from ebates. (I don't think this has to be on a single purchase.) Ebates pays quarterly, so you won't receive cash back until February."

(PS: I did get the ebates cashback approval notice within a day or so, and I know several other forum members did as well.)

... for the Mint deal, are we allowed to get two $20 cash backs? I got one already, tempted for another one. This deal uses the same IRFREESHIP code...

.... I don't know..... good question.
Mint doesn't seem to object to multiple purchases (4 max, I think) but I don't know about Ebates.

The $20 deal is good to Jan 1st, hope they have more of this $20 cash back offers...

Re getting a 2nd $20 rebate... guess could refer a family member to yourself (and get $25) then use that new acct to get the $20 cash back.

Thanks KentE. This is a fantastic deal and it is great it is still running. I only wish there was no expiry on the sims so I could stock up. You have to activate within 45 days.

I got my ebates cashback pretty quickly (I think it was within 24hrs). Cellnuvo took a day or two longer but the silver posted.

I noticed that ebates has a pretty strong warning against self-referrals, which they may track by mailing address.

Just tested the extra Mint SIM on a locked T-Mobile Note 3... the SIM looks usable, no SIM error message!

Wow, Mint is really lacking in porting flexibility... when you activate online (via the appt), you have to decide if you are porting in or not, you cannot port in a number after activation.
