Make sure your Apple ID is setup in the User & Groups System Preference.
When you sign into the App Store with your Apple ID, press the option key before clicking Purchases. Does Mountain Lion show up ready to Install?
If it does, download it again, but do not click Continue when it auto-runs and wants to update your rMBP. Now get Lion Diskmaker and a spare 8GB USB stick. Let Lion Diskmaker will ask you if Lion or Mountain Lion, then automagically build the bootable USB stick. Realize that the bootable USB stick will only provide full, clean installs.
