Don’t Forget – If You Purchased A Mac After June 6, Your Lion Upgrade Is Free!

Don’t Forget – If You Purchased A Mac After June 6, Your Lion Upgrade Is Free!

Don’t forget – If you purchased a new Mac between June 6th and today, you are eligible for a free upgrade to Mac OS X Lion! Apple’s Lion Up-To-Date program is now live, and I have redeemed a code myself, so I can assure you that it works!

From Apple’s original press release in June:

The Mac OS X Lion Up-To-Date upgrade is available at no additional charge via the Mac App Store to all customers who purchased a qualifying new Mac system from Apple or an Apple Authorized Reseller on or after June 6, 2011. Users must request their Up-To-Date upgrade within 30 days of purchase of their Mac computer. Customers who purchase a qualifying Mac between June 6, 2011 and the date when Lion is available in the Mac App Store will have 30 days from Lion’s official release date to make a request.

The free upgrade comes in the form of a Mac App Store redemption code that will allow you to download and install OS X Lion onto all your registered Macs through the official channel. Don’t forget – this is a great way to save $30!

To apply, just visit http://www.apple.com/macosx/uptodate/, click the appropriate redeem link, enter your serial number and when/where you bought the machine, and presto – you have your redemption code! They even automatically email it to you!

They also have an up-to-date program for Lion Server under the same terms.

  1. I just got off the phone with them. They say the system is down. However, I’ve been told you should call them so they can contact you whenever they resolve the issue.
