    Did they think I wouldn't notice?

    Anyone who knows me knows I'm a Tesla supporter but something is really wrong if they are making mistakes like this.

    Nope, can't use your credit card for reservations.

    Not really in a joking mood. Was thinking the Sig's would have been better than the betas and wish I had invested the money elsewhere the past 3+ years. Like paying off my S.

    Sigs couldn't reserve using a CC? I reserved my Production X with a credit card.

    No cc for Sig reservations - I assume the surcharge on $40k was a little too much.

    Discoducky, I'd be *not happy*, too. Hopefully this is rectified very quickly.

    Was PayPal an option when you reserved? Or did Elon want to avoid fees.

    No. Wire transfer, personal check. Those were the options for the Sigs. It might have changed later, but definitely the only options in the beginning.

    Why not just call them and ask them to mail you the balance of your deposit? I assume this hasn't been done, and when it is done, the problem will be fixed immediately.

    No huge fuss, just hope Tesla hasn't done this to someone else and they maybe did NOT notice. :eek:

    lol, a huge part of the attraction of Internet forums is about fuss making.
