    From the Tesla Motors Referral Program web site it suggests that Model S owners will receive an email with a link they can pass on to a friend to participate in the program. Anyone in Australia got this email?

    Yes, I got mine this afternoon.

    It purportedly comes from Elon's email address and has details of the scheme and a link as you suggest.

    It looks like the link is (for you) <SNIP> - could be wrong...

    Got mine this afternoon. It was kind of fun to see a notification pop up on my phone saying I had an email from Elon Musk.

    I received mine too. It's an A$1,500 discount, which is not bad, given that Tesla don't usually discount.

    My link is <SNIP>. Feel free to use it, if you've been thinking of buying a Model S. I get a similar credit.

    Here's the full text.
    --
    Word of mouth has always been a major part of how Tesla sales have grown. When I meet Tesla owners, one of the first things they often tell me is how they have convinced many others to buy the car.


    As you may already know, Tesla does not advertise or pay for endorsements or product placement. Maybe by doing so we could sell more cars, but I don’t like the idea of trying to trick people into buying a product by false association. If you see somebody famous driving a Model S, it is because they genuinely like the car. If you see it in a movie or TV show, it is because the people associated with that production genuinely like the car.


    Besides word of mouth, another way that our cars are sold is through stores. These will always be important to allow people to check out new models and ask our product specialists detailed questions. However, stores are quite expensive to set up and operate. In reviewing the Tesla cost of sales, we found that it is approximately $2,000 (USD) to sell a car through our stores, higher in some regions and lower in others.


    Both ways of reaching potential customers are important, but, if we can amplify word of mouth, then we don’t need to open as many new stores in the future. So, we are going to try an experiment. This is similar to the customer growth program that I worked on at PayPal/X.com back in ’99. What worked for PayPal may not work for Tesla, but it is worth trying, as the net result would be lowering our costs by $2,000 (USD), allowing us to give that money to our customers.


    From now through October 31st, if someone buys a new Model S through your link (<SNIP>), they will get $1,500 (AUD) off the purchase price and you will get a $1,500 (AUD) credit in your Tesla account, which can be applied to a future car purchase, service charge or accessories. To put some limits on the experiment, each Tesla owner can grant a maximum of ten $1,500 (AUD) discounts.
    Just for fun, there will also be some things that money can't buy. If five of your friends order a Model S, you and a guest will receive an invitation to tour the Gigafactory in Nevada – the world’s biggest factory by footprint – and attend the grand opening party. This will be awesome. At ten orders, you get the right to purchase a Founder Series Model X, which is not available to the public, with all options free (value of about $25,000). The first person to reach ten will get the entire car for free.


    Elon

    Moderator's Note: The moderator's have discussed this and made a policy decision to not allow these referral links on these forums, and I have accordingly redacted (<SNIP>) the referral links posted here. If we let it go wild the forum would be buried in referral spam.

    If you are looking for a referral code, I suggest you seek out an owner of a Model S in your area. There are lots here now, and you most likely already know someone who owns one. If you want to publicise your own code, to earn referrals, then I suggest you honour the spirit of Tesla's promotion and make the sale.

    Hi all. I'm ordering my Model S this month and was wondering there is anyone in Brisbane that has a referral code they would like to share. Let me know and I'll pass you my email address.
