    they don't expire. They will remain on your account until you use them.

    @stopnair, I reviewed the page on the Super Charging details and didn't find an expiration that would apply here. First thing I would look is under the Vehicle Details page, it should list your Super Charging Credits. Other than that I would suggest contacting Tesla about the possible expiration of the miles. So unless someone has reached out to Tesla I can't find a definite answer to this question.

    @jimglas you're wrong. they expire after 6 months of being added as stated:
    https://www.tesla.com/support/referral-program

    view under Limits section.

    Free Supercharger miles will apply to any vehicles on the same account, and will expire 6 months after the miles are added. Each additional referral will extend the expiration date by 6 months.

    ^^ This was not there 2 days back.. So first 5000 expires 6 months but if you add a second referral it would extend the expiration by additional 6 months.. so looks like 10000 miles will expire in 1 year..

    I read the limits section a couple of days after they introduced the 5000 mile referral program, and the 6-month limit was there at that time. It wasn't snuck in just two days ago.

    The way I understand it, the referral offer is 6 months of free supercharging capped at 5000 miles. But I think it sounds like a better offer when Tesla says "5000 miles of supercharging" without mentioning the time limit until you read the fine print.

    Yeah, based on my SC usage 6 months will get me about 300 miles. Not a real incentive. I mean I suppose I could drive to the closest SC at lunch once a week to charge up, but eating nearby would cost me as much as the electricity savings I'd be getting, so no real bonus.

    Sad part of this: "Unfortunately, Ohio and Virginia residents are not eligible for referrer awards." Which is confusing as that means even though my account says I can refer users for 5K SC Miles, I am not eligible because I live in Ohio.

    They should never expire, most people won’t use 5k miles in 6 months unless you do all charging at the super charger.
  • Too bad the 5k miles expire. It would be great if you could trade it in for Tesla merchandise like a key fob, or for cash value towards more expensive merchandise like a set of floor mats or perhaps home charging equipment.
  • I purchased model 3 on April 22 and still have not received 1000 supercharger miles. Anyone in same boat?

    I purchase was referred by a friend. My friend and myself should have got 1000 miles each right?

    Are you supposed to see the 1000 supercharger miles immediately after delivery? I was told it may take a week but have become wary with the service Tesla has been providing.

    I should have gotten my first referral about a week ago. I haven't seen anything yet.

    The 5000 miles (or in my case, 7500 km) is not very straight forward.
    Is this based on rated range? (3700km of actual driving if used in the winter)
    If you have different models of Teslas, does it adjust for the rated range of each car each time?
    I assume that Tesla is simply providing a fixed number of KWHr that gives the 5000 miles / 7500km. However, all of the SCs in my area are time based. Does that mean I should treat them as KWHr based until this runs out? (That can affect my charging habits)

    Providing this award as a function of miles looks good but is in fact, the least straight forward way to present it.

    @yogesh_diwan, have you checked your lock box in your phone app or by pressing the Tesla icon on your car screen.

    It saysthat referrals are now going down to 1000 miles in a few days. But then since June is the end of the quarter they will probably change it around inanother 2 weeks anyway.

    @Iwantmy3. Based on the Supercharging I have used on my LR3 under the 1,000 mile referral, Tesla is assigning 2.5 miles per kWh. Therefore, you will get 400 kWh for a 1,000 mile referral.

    The “loot box” shows a running total of your remaining free charging miles. Mine says 4,540 miles remaining with 656 miles on the car and all charging has been via Tesla. The first charge that the car was delivered with is the difference.

    Referral miles are good for a year!

    "Credits awarded for qualifying referrals are valid for 12 months from the credit award date and can be used toward services, vehicle accessories or new Tesla products."

    apodbdrs,
    What credits is this referring to?
    The free supercharging miles are limited to six months.
    "Free Supercharger miles will apply to any vehicles on the same account, and will expire 6 months after the miles are added. Each additional referral will extend the expiration date by 6 months."

    My loot box shows 1 referral ordered but not yet delivered. I assume the referral reward will be based on the program at the time of the referral and not the time of delivery but that it will be effective at the time of delivery.

    Why such a short expiration period? As someone who primarily charges at home, burning through 7500km (5000 miles) of supercharging in 6 months seems like a monumental task.
  • @apodbdrs Thanks for responding to my post. I do see a lock box on my phone screen and I am assuming that is if I refer someone to buy a Tesla I get referral miles.

    However I bought my M3 more than a month agog using a referral code from a friend and I was told both of us get 1000 referral miles. Is this not correct?

    yogesh_diwan,
    If you go to your tesla account online, It will show you your tesla referral link. Underneath that, it should show you any referrals that you have pending.

    Friends Ordered...........Delivered...........Cancelled Orders

    There goes my theory that miles was better than unlimited for six months. If the miles did not expire, I believe most owners would save the miles to use when they need them, ie.. while on a trip. Since they expire, many owners will tend to use the superchargers locally before the expiration date.

    What?! I'm glad I read this forum. I have 3k supercharging miles and was not aware that they expire. This whole time I was saving it for a trip. Guess I'm heading to the supercharging station and load up before they expire. :(

    I have free unlimited supercharging until September, if I add an referral does the 5000 miles start until my free is gone or it starts right now?
