EDD without submitting payment method?

Hi, I ordered a MYLR on 9/8 (all standard, no FSD), changed to white interior on 9/13. No EDD yet.

I'm planning to finance through Tesla. However I'm not expecting to take delivery before January 2022 and a credit application is only valid for up to 60 days, so I didn't apply for a loan yet. I just don't want to have an unnecessary hard pull on my credit. Thus the "Prepare for delivery" box is not checked yet.

Is this step required to receive an EDD? Or in other words: Has anyone received an EDD without submitting the payment info?

I received my initial EDD without submitting payment information. But then it disappeared after a month or so. Also looking at other people with similar OD, mine is definitely delayed due to delay in payment info.

I would suggest selecting cash for now and calling SA to change it closer to the delivery

I did the same thing yesterday by selecting cash.
I put my order 2 months ago and had no idea credit offer expires after 2 months. Yesterday my credit expired and I selected cash and told my SA and also told him that I would go with financing during delivery and he was ok with that.
