    Hi guys,

    I bought a MBP last week and got the BTS 100$ credit to the Mac App store. I knew that I would be entitled to a free upgrade to Lion and thought - stupidly - that it would somehow 'know' that when downloading it from the app store directly.

    I downloaded Lion, rather it is still downloading, and my credit is now down to 68$. Any way I can 'return' this and get the free upgrade?

    On The Nickel, over there....
    There is a way to contact Apple through the App Store. I did after buying iPhoto 11, and the whole install went Joisey on me. Apple refunded my money via a credit in the App Store.
    I'm sure if you contact Apple and nicely explain what happened, they will check it out and make it right by you as well.

    I'm not sure if my download is working in the first place. It has been a solid 30 mins and there isn't any blue at all underneath the little lion thingy. Is there any place I can check the actual percentage or the time remaining or anything?

    Sorry for being such a noob

    NVM found it- under purchased tab in the app store.

    don't you have to DL first before you get it for free? Im not sure as I had to get it for the $30 price, but It may be more of a rebate then a free DL. Again I do not now but just thought I would offer some kind of response.
