Free Mountain Lion upgrade to recent Mac purchasers (Update)

Update:  For those who qualify you will have to be a bit patient as Apple is now promising to get validation codes to users within 72 hours.  I just received mine after a 48 hour wait.  You will receive 2 emails from Apple, one has a PDF file that contains the content code which is password protected, the other email contains the password required to open the PDF file.  The download itself took 1 hour on a 15 Mbps connection, the installation process took another hour.

Just a reminder to those of you who purchased a new Mac on or after June 11, 2012, that you qualify for a free upgrade to OS X Mountain Lion.  According to Apple’s website, customers will have 30 days from the day the new OS becomes available which is expected to be July 25 (see earlier post).  To obtain your promo code users need to enter their date of purchase, address and serial number into Apple’s Up-to-Date website.  Once Mountain Lion becomes available, you would submit this promo code to the Mac App Store allowing you to download the upgrade for free.  For those who don’t qualify for a free version, can purchase the new OS for $19.99.
