    What if I took promo codes of the previous version and updated the app?
    Are the codes of the previous version still available after the game is updated?

    They might not work. They will last for a little while though.

    I thought the old codes were made invalid once you get the new 50

    Oh is it when you take codes for the new version that the old ones become invalid.

    Ohh.. really? that means you can still use the old codes as far as you don't touch the new ones?

    I don't think so. Like say you upload "iGame 1.0", you would get 50 redemption codes for "iGame 1.0"

    They're codes for a specific product

    Once you upload "iGame 1.1" then the old codes don't work because "iGame 1.0" doesn't exist anymore.

    But I've used codes for previous versions of apps after they have been updated. I know that for sure. But I don't know how long after the update that they will work.

    hmm, maybe there is a grace period? like once the new ones are given the old ones only last for another x amount of time

    Or maybe they just have a normal expiration date like 30 days after they are given out?

    Codes last for 4 weeks after they are downloaded. I can't think of anything that would cause a code to be able to distinguish between different versions of an app, unless the new version was actually uploaded as a new app for some reason.
