Subtotal needs to be exactly $100 or higher.

Thanks, I figured as much. What if I use trade credit as part of the payment?

Trade credit works the same as cash for these promos. You can pay the whole transaction in trade credit.

To spend $100 does it have to be in a single transaction to trigger the $25 cash rewards or could it be multiple trans to add up over $100?

A single transaction.

A single transaction.

I assume online and in-store work for this promo since the ad doesn't mention either  :-k

Nobody knows for sure, since it doesn't start till tomorrow. GS could change the stipulations for all we know between now and then.

If your total is $100 but you use gamestop credit do you still qualify for the 25 reward card?

If based on prior experience, it will be $5 bump PER game, not transaction.  Just be mindful that the base trade value has to be $2 or more, and the trade value can fluctuate throughout the week.

Typically it's $5 per transaction. The ad says that you get an extra $5 credit when you trade in a qualifying game, not for each one.

Yes, you can use any form of payment (trade-credit, giftcards, credit card, cash)  and still qualify.

No, I think you might be referring to a previous promo where the $5 bonus gets added TOWARDS A SELECT PRE-ORDER when you trade-in your old games.  That promo only nets $5 per transaction even if you trade in multiple games.

Hope gamestop doesn't mind doing a billion extra transactions then.

Can I trade in any USB-c, micro-USB, and mini-USB cables? Or do they want Sony, nintendo, or xbox branded stuff? This is to trade in by itself and not with a system or controller. And do they take iPhone lightning cables?

I have traded in random usb cords with no problems...some have even been pretty short.  Just don't go over 4 of one style.  I don't think they take lightning cables anymore tho.

Oh hopefully. Maybe I'm just tempering expectations. I prefer to be pleasantly surprised than disappointed. lol.

extra $5 trade in with any ps4, xb1 or switch game with at least $2 trade in value, could be interesting.

Employees are already posting on Reddit that it's $5 on top of the transaction, not each game.  So if you trade 3 games for a total of $25, it would be 10%(pro boost) + $5 to equal $32.50.  Also check the TIV in the morning, as there will probably be a TIV drop.

I was just about to say that. The Reddit thread says it's per game. But the promotion doesn't start until tomorrow, so I'd still take that with a grain of salt until people start posting their experiences.

The $5 per game isn't bad for those games that had a TIV under $10 during the 50% extra promo if you happened to not trade those in.

For anything <$25 base, the extra $5 would be better.

These are almost always in-store only now and having checked it, this is as well.
