The current Tesla Referral Program expired last night and Tesla has updated the referral program with the following changes.

First, the referral program is now extended through April 30, 2018.  This means that since its an extension, previous referrals made in the last program count toward this program.  So, if you were one referral away from Arachnid wheels or a Powerwall 2, then this is a great opportunity for another chance.

Second, Tesla has added a new weekly drawing for a chance to race the Tesla semi truck.  “One winner each week will get to race a giant electric semi truck around our test track. There will be additional prizes and trophies for the best track times. Each friend who signs up for our newsletter through your referral link gets each of you an entry. Owners can track their entries and the leaderboard in the Tesla App.”

Third, Tesla has added a $500 credit toward service or accessories for the first friend each owner refers in this new referral program.  Friend still receive free supercharging with the purchase of a new Model S or X with the referral code.

Here’s the list of referral awards available for the extended referral program:

The Tesla Referral Program has been an important way for Tesla to encourage current Tesla owners to spread the word and encourage their friends to be interested and potentially purchase a Tesla.

The ultimate secret level in the Referral Program is a chance to win a new Tesla Roadster for free if one receives 50 referrals.  Ben Sullins of Teslanomics referred over 50 people to buy a new Model S/X through his YouTube videos and is one of the lucky few who have already won a new Tesla Roadster.

(TeslaWeekly’s Referral code is available for you and will get you free supercharging on a new Model S/X,  Also, as of the time of this article was published our referral code still has the $500 credit available.  Available to first person who uses our code.)
