    Tesla has added a new round to its referral program set to run from May 1 to July 15. No new awards were added, but the sequence of awards is switched up a bit. Here’s what was announced on Tesla’s Referral Program website: 1 to 2 Qualifying Referrals: Owners can choose either of the options...

    I am currently going to be getting my Model 3 in the next couple of weeks... very excited but where the heck is the Model 3 owners referral program as I know tons of people that would like to put down a grand to wait once they ride in my car or drive it if I let them??? Model 3 owners will be very much approached to understand the car as we are first owners in the WILD... spread the Tesla Love with some Model 3 Love Elon Musk and Team Tesla.

    It's because there is no incentive for them to drive new sales when the waitlist is around 400k long

    Margins are too small on the 3 for this. Selling a high end car leaves room for sales rewards. It also keeps negative reviews down as someone getting paid is less likely to post bad reviews.

    The Tesla showroom sales team also personally make money only with MS & MX sales and not the M3 sales. The M3 sells like hot buns, no need to incentivize them. The more expensive cars sales are the ones that need to be promoted with referral awards etc.

    Well, the first 500,000 or so are already "sold" and waiting for deposits to be configured into actual orders. Anyway, last I read these are straight salary jobs and no commissions. So I think you are in error. No one getting paid extra for sales.AND everyone pays the same price. Imagine that.

    Actually, salespeople are hourly employees.

    I could swear my OA mentioned that they personally did not get anything for M3 sales but they stood to benefit from MSand MX sales.

    I was happy to get my letter after getting my first referral saying I was going to receive either a "mini Tesla" or a wall charger. Since I have no grandchildren and probably won't for a long time, if ever, I chose a wall charger. I thought that was a very nice gesture after just one referral! Just placed my order for it last night!:)

    I bought the Tesla solar panels for my home in March 2017. I was given a referral code at that time and was told I could even get credit for my own purchase of a Tesla.
    Bought a new 2017 Model X in December 2017. Was told I would get a wall charger for my garage.
    Bought a new 2018 Model S P100D in early March 2018. Was told I would get a radio controlled model.
    On my referral, my neighbor ordered a new 2018 S which was delivered about the same time as mine. I was told I would get a set of 21" forged wheels for my S.
    I have had at least 20 contacts with Tesla in the last two months. They keep telling me to be patient and that there is some glitch from their end. They do acknowledge that I am due the rewards but to date, almost six months since my first purchase, I have not received anything.
    I have spent about $400,000 but they seem unable to help me with this issue. The way I have been treated, I don't think I would recommend the company to anyone.

    Actually not true anymore. Their compensation is partially tied to performance quotas.

    On the phone app, click on the Loot Box and go down to My Awards - it should show you the estimate for when each of the selected rewards will be available. If you received the email to redeem your award, that is. If not, I would keep chasing Tesla!

    Maxwell sounds like a lot of other owners. Problem is they keep buying Tesla products anyway. So why should Tesla rush to meet promised goods or services?
