    I purchased 2019 RWD LR May 2019 and received 5,000 supercharging credit June 2019.
    It now shows the expiring date in Tesla app. image0.jpeg

    Wasn't the original deal supposed to be 6-months or 5K, whichever comes first? I guess they extended it to a year?

    It takes a pandemic for them to finally do this, eh?

    Same here with exact the same date as above. I have mine from sep 14 2019... What is the date based on?
    Impossible to use it now, especially during the pandemic...

    They say that the time extends a year from the date of your last referral but the dates seem to be more

    Well in my case it should be Sep 14 instead of May 31st. This date makes no sense...

    Loot box didn’t show up at first. Now it’s back. And yep. Same expiration as the rest of ya. Guess I’ll go ahead and supercharge when I get bored.
    Got laid off yesterday so my travel looked like it might decrease. Then got offered a job today which will double my commute. Lol. Still no supercharger in the ~60 mile each way commute.

    I really believe Tesla has enough referrals. The word is officially world-wide that Tesla is the best.

    The usefulness of referrals has run its course.

    Now....I don't believe that those who gave referrals earlier are worth roadsters, but that's just my opinion. I believe the referrals they made to the world didn't make that much of a difference in the overall scheme of selling Teslas. The word was going to be getting out anyway. Tesla made a mistake there.

    Lastly I believe that it was totally unfair that the rest of the world ( non US ) lacked the opportunity to participate in the referral program due to the fact that they received their cars so late in the game. Its not their fault. Tesla could have made some provisions for them some kind of way.

    I could have actually used mine if my trip didn’t get canceled because of the coronavirus. Now I'm at a point where I'm not even driving the car, let alone needing supercharging.

    Kind of sh*tty of them to have these expire when most of the country is shut down and people aren’t supposed to travel.

    How long does it take for miles to show up?
    I referred someone and it shows as delivered as of March 19th but no indicator of miles anywhere.

    Not gonna lie—this is an appalling decision on Tesla's end. If we earned the miles, then we should have the ability to utilize them at our convenience with no expiration date involved. It is especially unethical to enforce this during a time when the majority of people are staying home.
