Today Is The Last Day To Get 5000 Miles Of Free Supercharging With A Tesla Order

Tesla is offering 5,000 free miles of Supercharging if you order by May 27 (today). You have to use those miles within 6 months, but they could save you about about $450 if you drive a lot, less if you drive less. You should also get your car by June 30, 2019 — so, if you are in the US, you should be eligible for the $3,750 tax credit.

You should also get your car by June 30, 2019 — so, if you are in the US, you should be eligible for the $3,750 tax credit (if you make enough money to owe that much in income taxes — see your accountant or tax advisor about that, or this answer from TurboTax/Intuit may help you).

If you don’t drive a lot, you probably won’t use more than a 1,000 miles in the 6 months you have to use them, so no hurry to order. On the hand, if you have driven a Model 3, do you really want to wait? Earlier, we were waiting for the Standard Range model or the leasing option. Now the only thing a few expected Model 3 buyers are waiting for is the tow hitch to be offered in their region.

If you buy now, you get the new Full Self Driving hardware and when the software is ready, it will update once you give the car permission.

The latest word on pricing is you can still get the $35,400 Model 3 (there was a $400 price increase 2 weeks ago). The $399/month lease pricing for the Standard Range Plus is unchanged. And if you don’t choose full self driving, you can buy it later without a $2,000 penalty. However, Tesla does warn that as features are released prices are likely to go up (see the part I put a red box around).

If you want to take advantage of my Tesla referral link to get 5,000 miles (hurry, 5,000 miles goes back to 1,000 miles after May 28) of free Supercharging on a Tesla Model S, Model X, or Model 3, here’s the link: https://ts.la/paul92237 (if someone else helped you, please use their code instead of mine).

I have been a software engineer for over 30 years, first developing EDI software, then developing data warehouse systems. Along the way, I've also had the chance to help start a software consulting firm and do portfolio management. In 2010, I took an interest in electric cars because gas was getting expensive. In 2015, I started reading CleanTechnica and took an interest in solar, mainly because it was a threat to my oil and gas investments. Follow me on Twitter @atj721 Tesla investor.
