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 Lionís official release date to make a request.

Apple's up-to-date page (http://www.apple.com/macosx/uptodate/) doesn't have much info yet though. This time, it will be completely free as there are no costs related to the media and shipping.

Didn't see this anywhere else yet so thought I should post this.

Your credit card has not bee charged yet so I think you are eligible. Give Apple a call and ask to make sure but I'm pretty sure you will get it for free.

Thanks for your reply! As I am not a UK citizen atm, I can't call Apple (I bought the MBP and had it ship to a friend's house). May someone ask Apple for me please?

How do you do this? Any chance you can submit it in the app store or somehow electronically?

Just curious, what is considered to be a "qualifying new mac system", does refurbished mac count? thanks

I wonder if they will send out a gift code or just auto matically add it to the apple ID you ordered with.
Because I use 2 different apple IDs. One for computer orders/developer account.
And another for just app purchases from appstores. I hope it is a code so I can get it through my app account.

Notice that page features an MBA, it's all you will need, no matter how small the drive is, because it's all up in the cloud now. I think Apple rushed it out, so that they can beat the Chromebook. Or not. :)
