Pre-order cancellation and rewards?
If i preorder a game, then cancel the preorder, will i still get the rewards. I would like the tf2 items for bioshock infinite but i already preordered the songbird edition of the game, so i don't see why i should drop $60 on a game i already bought

No of course not. That is begging for abuse lol.

No. If you cansell the pro-order, you will lose the items. If they were traded, then the person you gave them to would lose the items.

Woah, so if I pre-order, trade my pre-order reward for let's say a TF2 hat, cancel the pre-order, he loses the pre-order reward and I keep the hat? Or does he get his hat back?

You keep the hat, however the other guy could easily go to Steam Support and get their hat back.

And if it was determined that you did it with that intent then you'd probably get in trouble for scamming. ;)

I have no intention to scam. I just immediately thought of how it could get abused x3

Which usually ends on a trade ban (and permanent 'on probation' trade status) or even a locked account (no trade, purchase, or game activation on the account) if a chargeback is issued.
It's not the most wise thing to do, but has already happened quite some times.
Has happened enough times as to have a section featured on the steam trading guideliness
What if I redeemed a game from a trade that is fraudulently purchased?

If this happens, the account where the fraud took place will be suspended. Your account will not be suspended, however the game you redeemed/unpacked to your account will be removed. We will restore the items/gifts that were associated with the trade that you performed to receive the game

I'd think there would be something in order to prevent that, like something that doesn't let you trade pre-order rewards until the game is available and you can no longer cancel your order.

You guys are brilliant.... You can't trade preorder rewards until a while after the game comes out.
