An update to Tesla’s customer referral program is doubling the number of free Supercharging miles dished out when a purchase is made via a referral. The new offering gives both the new customer and the referring Tesla owner 2,000 free Supercharging miles.
Tesla says vehicle orders must be delivered before the first of October to qualify for the offering.
Each referral now also gives owners a chance to win a Founder Series Model Y or Roadster supercar. Tesla owners who already have free Supercharging get two chances to win.
Tesla in March brought back the referral program a few months after saying it was too costly to operate.
Under the terms of the restructured program, every customer a Tesla owner refers will earn both people 1,000 miles of free use of the Supercharger charging network and will enter the referrer into a monthly drawing for a special edition of the Model Y crossover and quarterly chance for a second generation Tesla Roadster, each signed by Tesla Chief Executive Elon Musk and Chief Designer Franz Von Holshauzen.
“While our previous Referral Program was very successful, it came with significant costs, and ending the program last year allowed us to pass those savings along to customers,” Tesla said in a blog post. “We’ve since restructured the program to save the company money while also offering rewards that are super exclusive.”
