I picked up TF2 when it became free. I want to be able to trade, and my friend got a copy of TF2 from the Potato Sack Pack. If I get that copy, will I get a premium account?

    Why not just try it? Either you do and you have a premium account, or you don't and your friend's gift copy is pointless now that it's free. But I'm with @Raven, I bet it will get you a premium account Sep 10, 2011 at 23:45
  • To add on to what the above commentators said, your best bet is just try it yourself. After which you can then post it as an answer to your own question, and get double the up votes.

You will receive premium. See the TF2 FAQ.

    Not only that, but you will receive the Proof of Purchase hat.
