Tesla Puts $1,200 On The Table For Home Charging Installations In Latest Round Of Incentives For New Owners

Tesla has quietly kicked off the third round of its popular referral program in the US.  More prizes are up for grabs, as well as a different twist on the old program - $1,200 off the cost of a home charging installation for new owners.

Previously, the top referrer in each of Tesla's main 3 regions won a  Ludicrous P90D Model S and VIP access to an all-expense paid trip to see the Model 3 unveiling (won in Europe by Bjørn Nyland).  For the non grand prize winners, 10 refferals got you a Model 3 invite, and 5 - a trip to the Gigafactory opening ceremony.

This time around a Ludicrous P90D Model X is up for grabs, and also a private tour at Mr. Musk's other day job - SpaceX.

However, unlike previous competitions that were dominated by persons with strong media platforms, this time prizes will be given out as part of a random draw.  Current owners can refer up to 3 persons, and get 3 chances to win in a draw.

And while we are sure this change will disappoint those who had attempted to turn earlier referral programs into a personal business, this change will ensure Tesla's entire owner base has a shot at winning.  The contest is good for all new deliveries by April 15th, and winners will be chosen on April 30th, 2016

Tesla explains the details fully this time around:

Spread the electric revolution and you could win a Ludicrous P90D Model X and a private tour of SpaceX.

Until April 15, 2016, Tesla owners will each have the opportunity to give up to 3 friends a credit of $1,200 toward the cost of their home charging installation. Anyone who uses a valid referral code to purchase a new Model S and takes delivery by April 15, 2016 will be eligible for the credit.

Even better, each qualified referral you make gives you an opportunity to win a referral program giveaway:

Ludicrous P90D Model X + SpaceX Tour One lucky referrer will win a Ludicrous P90D Model X as well as a tour for two of the SpaceX headquarters in Los Angeles, including travel and accommodations. This innovative company is revolutionizing space technology. It’s the very definition of exclusive: SpaceX isn’t open to the public.

SpaceX Tour Five referrers will win a tour for two of the SpaceX headquarters in Los Angeles, including travel and accommodations.

Thank you for continuing to build the Tesla community.

Limits Related Model S order must be placed after February 16, 2016 and delivered by April 15, 2016 for a referral code to qualify. Pre-owned vehicles are not eligible. Limit 3 referrals per owner. SpaceX tours are subject to the visitor meeting facility entrance eligibility criteria.

No entry fee, payment or purchase required for the drawing. Must be at least 18 years old to be eligible for giveaways. A random drawing with qualified referral codes will be held on or about April 30, 2016 to determine the winners, who will be contacted thereafter. Each referrer is only eligible to win a single giveaway, regardless of the number or referral codes entered into the drawing. Giveaways are non-transferable and not redeemable for cash. The winner is responsible for all taxes and local requirements and fees. Giveaways are subject to local laws and regulations. Unfortunately, Ohio residents are not eligible for the giveaways.

Good Faith

We introduce programs such as these in good faith and expect the same good faith in return. Please note that we may withhold awards where we believe customers are acting in bad faith or otherwise acting contrary to the intent of this program. To be clear, commercializing or otherwise selling referral codes is not appropriate, and we will not honor such codes. We cannot cover every nefarious scenario, nor will we attempt to, but we do promise to be fair and reasonable.
