Unlike the outgoing promotion, this latest program doesn't give referrers Tesla store credits – helping it stay in-bounds of laws in certain states – but it does allow them to be eligible for some pretty terrific prizes. Top prize this go-round? A shiny, new Ludicrous Model S P90D. That's the one that can rip your head from its shoulders if it's not firmly attached; the one that Motor Trend just clocked sprinting to 60 miles per hour in a brain-stem snatching 2.6 seconds. The one that, without a whole lot of options, prices out in the $120,000 neighborhood.
Along with a new car, top referrers from each of three regions (North America, Europe, and Asia) will also get VIP invites for two to the Model 3 unveiling event happening in late March of next year. For those quickest to refer ten confirmed sales, a Powerwall unit awaits, with installation included.
Those owners don't get the most referrals, or who only reach between five and ten sometime before the year-end deadline, aren't forgotten either. Ten or more qualifying contracts gets you an invitation for two to the Model 3 reveal party, while those who clear five will get a pair of tickets to the Gigafactory opening, with transportation from Reno, Nevada being provided.
For those buyers who take part, the reward is instant, with $1,000 being removed from the bottom line of their invoice. The program is open to Model S owners and, we understand, confirmed Model X signature series reservation holders. For more details, we have the complete text of the program awaiting your perusal below.
The current Model S Referral Program runs from November 1 to December 31, 2015. Anyone who orders a new Model S during this period using the referral link of a Tesla owner will get $1,000 off the purchase price of their Model S.
Referring owners will be eligible for our Referral Program giveaways:
Top Referrers by Region
The owner that makes the most qualifying referrals in each of North America, Europe and Asia/Pacific will receive a Ludicrous P90D Model S and an exclusive VIP invitation for two to the Model 3 unveiling event, including travel and accommodations.
First to 10 by Region
The first to make 10 qualifying referrals in each of North America, Europe and Asia/Pacific will receive a Tesla Powerwall Home Battery, installation included.
10+ Qualifying Referrals
Each owner that makes 10 or more qualifying referrals will receive an invitation for two to attend the Model 3 unveiling event.
5+ Qualifying Referrals
Each owner that makes 5 or more qualifying referrals will receive an invitation for two to attend the Gigafactory opening event, including transportation to and from Reno, Nevada.
We know that without our customers we would not be where we are today. This is our way of thanking you for continuing to build the Tesla community.
Owners can find their referral link by signing into their website account. Referral links are available to everyone with a confirmed order or delivered Model S. When a customer places a new order using an owner's referral link, $1,000 will automatically be taken off the purchase price of the new order. The referral link must be applied at the time of the initial order. Referral credits may not be applied retroactively once a deposit has become non-refundable.
Unless otherwise noted, owners receiving invitations to Tesla events will be responsible for the cost of their own travel, lodging and other incidentals.
You must be a current Tesla owner or have a confirmed order to make referrals, and cannot refer yourself. Only one referral credit can be applied to each Model S order; multiple credits on a single order are not permitted. Owners accepting giveaways will be responsible for any related taxes or government/third party fees.
We introduce programs such as these in good faith and expect the same good faith in return. Please note that we may withhold credits, discounts or other 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.
