Promo code question

I bought a game and then installed it on my iphone. I then got a promo code and redeemed it for the same game (without knowing it was for the same game). It re-installed on my iphone. Since I already owned the game would this promo code still work or would it be considered used? Thanks!

It's considered used.

If I may inject my own stuffing into this turkey, is there any way to revert the used code?

I kind of had a similar problem today, and feel horrible because I accidentally used three promo codes for the same game. So now it has three of this game queued up in my iTunes Downloads.

I feel really bad and want to know if there's any way I can reverse them. I asked Apple, and the response I got was "I don't know how promotion codes work, so you have to ask the code giver".
