This promotion is only for if you ordered the system online. You must have proof of the delivery date of your system in order to qualify. A packing slip or the like.

Not sure about what happens if you bought in-store. Can anyone else speak to that?

Ironic that the Pre Order link is broken. In Canada the Pre order is $35 but $29 US.

MikoMew - This is only for getting the "free" (you have to pay S&H however) upgrade to Snow Leopard if you have purchased a computer since June 8th.

Additionally:

Multiple Qualifying Computers on a Single Invoice

If you purchased multiple qualifying systems on a single invoice, you can either (1) purchase a Single-User Upgrade Kit for each qualifying product, at a cost of $9.95 (USD)*; or (2) purchase fewer Single-User Upgrade Kits and request the Right to Copy for the remaining qualifying products.
You're supposed to submit the form for each invoice for each Mac you're bringing "up to date" (aka getting the "free" upgrade if you've bought the computer since June 8th). If the computer was purchased before June 8th you're expected to buy the full version at $35 CDN if you want to upgrade to Snow Leopard.

Postmark: The date that the post office marks on the envelope when it is accepted. You can see more on Wikipedia.

yea i know its fore free i got my mac aug 15th so yea.. BUT ONLY ONE I wanted to get a few more so i could sell some to my friends =[
It would be quite illegal to order a bunch of cheap "Up to date" discs for only one qualifying system and resell them to friends.

Apple states that you can only have one $10(USD) up to date disc. Your friends can order their own Snow Leopard Update Discs for $35 CAD from Apple.

Apple accepted my upgrade request online. The system was purchased in July from Carbon Computing Ottawa. I only had to provide the serial number, the store name and the date of purchase to the website. Easy.

What actually showed up on line?

I bought a refurb MacBook Pro on June 18th.
When I go into the Apple store for Snow Leopard, it shows up as "Standard shipping and handling" AND free shipping at a price of $13.00.

Ships by Aug 28th.

I thought Snow Leopard was advertised at $US 9.95?
How does that translate into $C13.00
Easy, just use the same conversion formula they used to get the US $29 upgrade converted to can $35.

Beating a dead horse with this discussion. ;)

Apple doesn't simply convert American funds to Canadian funds based on the current exchange rate. There's more to it than that.
I was just surprised to see $13.- pop up since all that is mentioned in this thread is $10 US.

What doesn't make sense either is the comment that the $C13 is for shipping & handling and then right below it, it states that shipping is "free".

Seem to me that Apple is becoming as sloppy as some other sites when they program their web site - nobody seems to ever check if the end result makes sense.

Makes sense to me, since they're talking about two different shipping costs - the customer gets free shipping, but obviously Apple still has to pay for shipping. Since it's supposed to be a "free" upgrade (i.e. the customer does not have to pay for the product itself), the price is just to cover Apple's actual costs for processing and shipping the order. So for the customer, shipping is "free" because it's already been included in the item price. I guess it's just a way to zero-out the additional shipping line item.
