I am not certain but I think Mavericks is only free if you are on Mountain Lion 10.8

The earlier upgrades :-

Leopard 10.5 to Snow Leopard 10.6

Snow Leopard 10.6 to Lion 10.7


Lion 10.7 to Mountain Lion 10.8 were all chargeable.

If you are already on 10.8 then it is free but you do have to have an App Store account as thats how they are doing updates now. I think to have an account they require your credit card number.

Don't think you can get Mavericks via the older software update method.

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.
