I just checked my Tesla account and under vehicle configuration and it says I have free super charging until July 2021.
I had no idea. Anyone else?

Surprise. You got 11 months left now. Better start using it! It's nice not having to pay anything after a charge. Mine ends in Oct 2021 and have been almost exclusively supercharging the past 11 months

My only concern with daily supercharging over long time periods is the rate throttling after so many DC charge events. Info here about it.

There are only a VERY few who have Free Supercharging on their Model 3/Y, so for most, it's better to just charge at home. I have been availing myself of free DC Fast charging with the CHAdeMO adapter from Tesla. Didn't take too long to pay off the expensive upfront cost. But the Model S & X owners that charge with CHAdeMO have noticed that ANY DC charging counts against the lifetime total before the car begins restricting the speed of the fast charge.

I would be super happy if I never lose my ability to charge at V3 Superchargers at 1000MPH (if even for a moment), but I understand that the strategy of limiting high-speed charging is designed to prolong battery life, and I hope to make it another 30 years on my TM3s battery.

Lucky you! I was surprised when they took away my 4k free supercharging miles just recently...boo! I hadn't used much of it thinking I had them until they ran out...silly me!
