In the past, the Tesla referral program gave the purchaser of a New S or X free lifetime supercharging and $1000 off. Then the most recent program only gave free lifetime supercharging with no discount towards the vehicle and expired yesterday. I was curious what was coming next since it looked like they were dialing the benefit down and maybe the next referral program would have only been a limited number of years of supercharging?

Thankfully, the new program maintains free lifetime supercharging and they add a $500 service or accessory credit for the buyer. The catch is that only the first referral for every owner will get the $500 credit. Other referrals will only get the free supercharging but not the credit. This may actually spread out referrals so that buyers will seek out owners that have not given away a referral yet so they can get the $500 credit which is like getting a free HPWC. This may also make it harder for owners to rack up higher levels of referrals because buyers will try to find new referral codes. PS - If anyone buying or leasing a new S/X wants to use my referral code, feel free to PM me. I don't have any referrals for this period yet! ;)

If anyone is interested in the what the referrer will get, I've attached the details below. The new thing now is that one random winner every week will get to race the Tesla Semi around their test track and those with the fastest times will get unannounced "prizes". Entries for this seems to be based on number of sign-ups to the Tesla newsletter using the referral code and BOTH THE REFERRER AND THE PERSON SIGNING UP appears to get an entry. Unclear if S/X purchases also gives you an entry to race the Semi. Again, feel free to PM me if you want/need a code.

Tesla Referral Program:

Tesla customers can give friends exclusive benefits on Model S, Model X and solar panels with their personal referral code.

Model S and Model X: Free Unlimited Supercharging
Owners can give five friends free, unlimited Supercharging with the purchase of a new Model S or Model X. In addition to unlimited Supercharging, the first friend each owner refers between February 1 and April 30 will also receive a $500 credit toward service or accessories.

So not having any idea of how this actually works because if you just go to sign up for Tesla’s newsletter on their website, you don’t get prompted for a referral code and you don’t get an entry for the semi race.

So I entered my referral code address and I get this page automatically:
810c616e-5a51-4b2f-b650-19bf98e1f738-jpeg.5397



Then I entered my own email address and I get this message. Voila! I think I just gave myself 2 entries to race the semi. One for referring and one for signing up (which I think I was already signed up anyway)
539438d8-a813-488b-943d-27879955d98e-jpeg.5398



Then you close the window and the buyer can get the extra $500 for buying an S or X plus free lifetime charging or an extra 5 year warranty for a solar product. Presumably after one person gets the $500, that bonus will disappear from the page sot the buyer only gets the charging.
