Earlier today we reported that OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion was now available to download from the Mac App Store for $19.99. For those that have purchased a Mac computer on or after June 11th however, you are eligible for a free upgrade to Mountain Lion. I purchased a brand new MacBook Air recently so I was indeed eligible for this free upgrade. As such, as soon as I woke up this morning I filled out the required information to enrol in the up-to-date program and after I was finished immediately wondered - how long does it take to get your OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion redemption code?
I did a bit of research and discovered the time really varies. Some users have gotten their OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion redemption code in less than an hour, while some people are reporting that it could take days. I personally was not satisfied with what I found so I decided a poll would be in order to figure out the average time it takes to get an OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion redemption code. As such, if you have received your OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion redemption code please answer the poll below and share any further thoughts in the comments.
Update: Wow, after almost losing hope, I finally got my redemption code a few hours ago… making the total wait time over 48 hours.
