    from the Apple website:

    "To receive your Mac OS X v10.6 Snow Leopard upgrade, you must complete the order form and provide a photocopy of a dated, itemized sales receipt indicating the marketing part number(s) of the qualifying product(s) purchased. Order acknowledgments, packing slips, and purchase order copies are not valid."

    I still have the box that my MacBook Pro came in and it lists information of my mac on the box.

    Apple should just make it easy and have a "User History" on their website, so that you can look up your purchases and get your receipt from there. Or is there a way I can do that?

    If you bought on or after June 8, 2009, you qualify.

    You can look up your purchases on the Apple site if those purchases were direct from Apple's site. Log into the "Account" section using your Apple ID, and check order status. You can only view purchases from the past 18 months -- it doesn't give an option to show orders that are older than that.

    Sorry, might be a bit OT but how much will snow leopard cost if you don't take the upgrade, since I live quite far away from the nearest apple store (i'm guessing the dvds get sent to the US).

    You can have it shipped to you, having purchased it on the online store.

    If you have Leopard, it's $29. If you have Tiger, it's $120.

    So, If I have leopard (which I do) I can just buy the snow leopard DVD for $29 without sending in my leopard dvd?

    I thought sending in the leopard was part of the upgrade requirements.

    As far as I know, Apple hasn't said yet exactly how it will work. As of now it is wait and see.

    I have all my receipts sent to me vial e-mail so I have all of them in PDF form. All I should Have to do is show my Mobile Me e-mail on my iPhone when I am in the store.

    Seems I don't have to send in anything, just ordered the snow leopard upgrade from the apple store. Now we'll just have to wait and see. Sucks that apple (as far as I know) only has their official stores in the US.

    thanks for the info people!

    Can I get the 30 dollar upgrade version? my mac came with tiger but then leopard came out a week or two later and I got it for 10 dollars and it was an upgrade disc. So can I get snow leopard for 30 dollars with my current setup?

    Yes, because you currently have Leopard. Apple doesn't sell anything other than an upgrade disc. Besides Pystar, where are you going to get a Mac besides Apple? The computer came with a license and Apple just goes upgrades after that.
