No, Mavericks is a free upgrade going back to Snow Leopard users. I believe the issue that the OP has is that they probably never had an Apple ID/account which of course requires credit card info for buying things from iTunes and the Mac and iOS App stores.

OP, just enter the requested information. It is free for Snow Leopard users.

A credit card is not required for an AppleID. Select 'none' for payment options when setting it up.

You can use iTunes gift cards for apps that aren't free.

Read more carefully what I wrote.

You said a credit card is required. That is false.

Once again, read more carefully what I wrote!!

There is no need to provide a credit card and there is no reason to enter it in if the user does not want to.

I'm going by what you wrote:

You said: I believe the issue that the OP has is that they probably never had an Apple ID/account which of course requires credit card info for buying things from iTunes and the Mac and iOS App stores.

That is incorrect. There is no such requirement, even for paid content.

Using a gift card is not buying from iTunes. You are simply redeeming something you already paid for.

You then said: OP, just enter the requested information. It is free for Snow Leopard users.

Although it is free (you did get that part right), there is no need to enter in credit card information since a credit card is not required and the original poster stated he didn't want to.

That second part does not support your misunderstanding of what I said previous to that. That does not logically follow. I recommended he simply input the information to get what he ultimately wants.

If you meant something else, then you need to write more clearly.

My words were clear. It is you that wishes to make them appear to say things that they don't.
