    I bought my 2012 MBA off craigslist brand new sealed, so it didn't come with any receipt. Anyone know if I am still eligible for the free upgrade to ML? I saw at some point of the process it requires to upload proof of purchase.
    Thanks for the help in advance.

    If it has no recipe, how are you going to cook it? :confused:

    No recipe for cake or cookies or casserole? I'm sure it didn't come with a receipt, either.
    No.

    Hope the savings for going on Craigslist was worth it, which is to say if you got more than $20 off buying it at retail, you're still good even if you buy ML on the app store.

    Don't to forget to preheat the MacBook before mixing in Mountain Lion.

    just a follow up who may face a similar issue.
    I just got an code from apple to use on app store.
    Just used Craigslist as the retailer when you filled in the request form, and I wasn't required to submit any proof of purchase.
    This will probably work on purchase from ebay also.

    Enjoy ML~
    p.s fixed the spelling for cooking thread cap :x

    I was never required to put in any proof of purchase. from what i've heard, as long as you put the serial number correctly then you should be good.

    They require proof of purchase only for purchases that have been made outside the US.

    Ohhh oh... Are you sure it's a 2012?
    Best Buy Canada has been offering these same 2011 specs for that exact same price.

    All you need is the serial number to make a claim.

    like others said, you only need the receipt if outside the US. Now, if you enter the serial and it says you need to provide proof of purchase.....you may have been taken or gotten a stolen one. I messed up a few numbers in the serial the first time so it asked for proof of purchase....went back a screen and realized my error and it verified it w/o proof of purchase.
