Apple's OS X Lion Up to Date program which allows qualifying customers to get a free copy of Lion is now active. Customers who purchased a Mac after June 6th can receive a free redemption code for OS X Lion from the Mac App Store.
The program was activated yesterday, but there had been reports that the activation server was having issues resulting in serial numbers being initially rejected.
Requests must be sent in prior to August 19th or 30 days after the purchase of your Mac, whichever is later.

Yeah I guess I'll try that, thanks for the suggestion!
Entered my receipt info, got the activation code and redeemed it no problems for my new MBP. I was even able to use it for installation on my 2 year old iMac under the Purchased section of the Mac App Store.
Maybe you could write to Customer Service and request a refund?
