    For everyone that has taken delivery of a Tesla, do they allow using credit cards to pay the amount due at delivery? I financed my MX through Tesla and will owe about $15,000 at delivery; I would love to put this on my card and get the miles. Thanks!

    No, historically they've only allowed credit cards for deposits. Understandably, they don't like to lose the fee that credit card companies charge.

    I wish they would as the miles would be wonderful. But as Bonnie said they will not allow a credit transaction at delivery.

    I tried to. They wouldn't let me. Only the original $5,000 deposit was put on the credit card. The balance had to be paid by check.
