I was in such a rush to get an order in for the Visible E6 yesterday (thanks again, redrotors!) that I skipped any of the stackable offers. $25 was too good a deal to pass up in hopes of getting an extra $5, $10, or even more.
If I hadn't been worried about the stock depleting again right away, I would have gone for the extra discounts.
The Moto E6 still seems available today, so it looks like I needn't have rushed.

I'm looking forward to kicking Visible's tires for the first month. After that, I'm not sure-- except that if the trial goes well, I'll know to consider it a viable possibility if my needs increase (and my budget along with it).

My order process did not go smoothly-- it hung up after entering payment terms. Chat helped me work through it, which involved clearing cookies & cache, and repeating the order process after signing back in to my just-created login. They could see that my CC had cleared and the order was stuck in "draft status". I was pleasantly surprised by the competence and quick response of the Chat agent, since I've read about a lot of problematic sign-ups. The agent stayed in the Chat session while I went through the process again, and confirmed that he could see the order in place before saying goodbye.
If you're poked around the ordering process before (as I had), it might be worth clearing cookies and cache before you start the process of actually placing an order.

I've kicked Visible's tires on the E6 in Kansas City, Phoenix, and San Jose areas so far in the ~9 days or so that I've had it, and the service is pretty flawless. Data is fast enough, hotspot works, & voice quality is extremely good, even on speaker phone. I think the voice quality is a Verizon thing rather than a Moto thing. In my experience, Sprint voice quality is pretty poor, as is AT&T. I've had nearly no voice experience on T-Mobile device.

The phone itself is as you would expect for a low end Moto. Very fast for now for the money. Hope it doesn't slow down too much over time. It's my first Android 9 phone, & seems fine.

I got my Visible Moto E6 yesterday, but no time yet to activate it. (Thanks, redrotors, for the timely notification that it was back in stock!)

I'm hoping my experience will be as positive as jamielih posted above. In the meantime, I did run the IMEI through several BYOD check pages.
Tello (Sprint) says AWESOME! Your phone wants to join Tello.
Verizon gives it a green light
T-Mobile says it's well equipped for compatibility with VoLTE and extended range on their network, but can't confirm locked/unlocked status.

I haven't tried installing a SIM for any of those, though. That's probably the hurdle that counts.

There's some recent discussion in the Slickdeals thread where it seems that the E6 has problems with LTE data on Sprint MVNOs, but not Sprint itself. Calls and texts work fine, and 3G data also works, but it's been mentioned several times that LTE doesn't work on Tello.

Anyway, I'm most curious as to whether Visible locked down the E6 after that big run early in the month that caused this model to be out of stock. I sure hope that the replenished stock isn't locked.

Ours came yesterday too & without activating it on Visible, I popped in an older FP SIM, which didn't do much, but was not shown as refused, then popped that out & tried a PAYG AT&T SIM, which prompted for activation before I shut it down again, then tried the IMEI at Twigby's BYOD checker, which was so happy to see it that they offered a free SIM.
So...I'll see if the extra Sprint SIM that I already have may work with it before going any further, but ATM, the best path IMO will be to get the value out of the $20 trial here before cancelling that in favour of keeping Twigby and its nicely lower pricing.

After you said this I checked mine. I've not been able to get data on mine on tello. I thought it worked last month when I first connected but I can't remember if I checked data or not now. 3g won't work.

I assume they had to modify the phone in some way to get visible to work and it broke the sprint side. There is no option to update profile which is usually an option in sprint phones. Calls,texts work fine.

I had mine before the slickdeals rush so they haven't done anything new to it.

mmfacemm, what sprint SIM card did you use?

Thanks for the mention that the Profiile Update menu doesn't appear. That does seem odd. Just looked at my G4 Play (on Sprint), and the closest thing is under Settings> More> Cellular Network settings> Carrier Settings> Update device config. (which I assume is Profile. There's also an option for Update PRL in the same spot, and a couple of steps upward from there a 'Reset carrier settings'.)
