    Hi there - hoping someone can help me figure this out.

    My friend referred me to Tesla solar installation and is getting the option of either the $400 cash or $750 Tesla credit. He doesn't have a use for the Tesla credit, but I do, since I have a Model 3 and haven't purchased a wall charger. I figured I could have him buy the wall charger with his referral credit and then I'd get it installed on my own, but that would only use $500 of the $750, and I would hate to see the rest of it go to waste. He said that the correspondence he received indicated that it can't be used on merchandise (darn, can't just get a bunch of t-shirts ;)!), but the wall charger is something it could be used on.

    Any experiences or thoughts in regards to this?

    Unless Tesla is the lowest price for solar this may not be worth doing.

    My installation is done -- the price ended up being quite fair after the price match that they did.

    True. Get a quote from Tesla then tell them that you have a better quote somewhere. They will match the price ;-)

    $500 is better than $400 :). I was able to use my first credit towards my Model 3. My second credit I opted for the $400 check. I wanted the $600 kids Model S, but it wasn't clear that I could use it to buy that and I never got a response from the emails I sent out. So now I'm waiting on the check.

    Car cover, wheel locks, tire inflation and repair kit, some charging adapters and a T shirt.
