Tesla Motors Has An Affiliate Program, And It Sucks

As some of you may know, I have an order in for a new Tesla Model X. I ordered the falcon winged $140K electric SUV (with Ludicrous mode) the day after Elon Musk unveiled it to the world back in September 29, 2015.

Today, I logged into my Tesla account hoping to see an update on delivery. There was none. There was however, a Model S referral program.

Model S Referral Program
Between February 16th and April 15th, you can use your unique link below to give up to 3 friends a credit of up to $1,200 towards their home charging installation with the purchase of a new Model S.

The offer seems nice enough. Most Tesla owners would install a home charger for their new car and $1,200 is a nice saving.

What does Tesla give to the affiliate who referred the new customer who will spend $80K to $140K on a new Model S? Pretty much nothing more than a hope and a prayer.

Each qualified referral you make gives you an opportunity to win a referral program giveaway:

Ludicrous P90D Model X + SpaceX Tour
One lucky referrer will win a Ludicrous P90D Model X as well as a tour for four of the SpaceX headquarters in Los Angeles, including travel and accommodations. This innovative company is revolutionizing space technology. Itโ€™s the very definition of exclusive: SpaceX isnโ€™t open to the public.

SpaceX Tour
Five referrers will win a tour for four of the SpaceX headquarters in Los Angeles, including travel and accommodations.

That’s right. Help Tesla sell a $100K+ car, and you might win a prize! In terms of affiliate rewards relative to the dollar amount of sales, this has to rank among the stingiest referral programs in the industry.

Anyway, if you’re in the market for a new Tesla Model S and want to save $1,200 towards home charging installation, order your Tesla with this link, and you’ll get it. The code can only be used three times, so get your order in now.

Maybe I’ll have two Ludicrous P90D Model X sitting in my garage instead of one. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Wow, they sure know how to form partnerships. Actually I’m surprised to hear they even offered anything t all. Look forward to your “Driving” episodes w/ the Tesla.

  2. Sean Baxter says:

    They use to offer the same money to the person doing the referral but got into big trouble with it. Apparently that’s illegal (at least in some states) and because you can’t do it in all states people complained….

    …..this is why we can’t have nice things.

      I will still keep the F Type. Got to have something that makes noise!

  3. Vinayak says:

    What were you expecting them to give you? I guess I am not in the market for a $100K+ car so I have no idea about affiliate promotions for these type of items.

  4. Boo Rhodes says:

    When over regulation kills the affiliate program everyone loses.

    I gotta confess, I’m not a fan of electric cars yet.
