They told me today 25off was never supposed to work on preorders and no longer will, but old orders already done will be honored. So yours might go through if they are not also watching current orders. Let us know what happens.
For what it's worth, I placed a new order with 25OFF on Saturday evening (4/24) that had three pre-orders in it (Super Mario Galaxy 2, Majin and the Forsaken Kingdom, and Trinity Universe), as well as one in-stock used game (which I had originally added as filler to get over $100 before I decided to add Majin as well, and then decided to keep on after adding it, both because I wanted it and in case having an in-stock item on the order matters). The status has changed as of this evening to "pre-order ships xx/xx/xxxx" on the pre-orders, and the used item has shipped. So it seems like it does still work for pre-orders, at least for me.
I often get the sense that when GameStop customer service reps have absolutely no idea what they're talking about, they just make shit up -- and when they do, they usually go conservative on their answers to avoid getting in trouble. It's really better to just try it than to ask.
This deal has been extremely good to me. Other than things that haven't even been announced yet, I'm pretty much good for release-date purchases for the rest of the year now (and possibly into next year, since I'm going to be surprised if a few of these don't get delayed -- I'm looking at you, Fable III). I'm going to be sad to see it end, but on the other hand, my wallet will probably be happier when it's gone.
