The Aptera Forum
They must put in a pre-order. Once you have yours for free (which you will get before them) then...
That is not in any way a clear answer before when, what? So, are you saying as long as I get 26 people to pre-order I will get a free car regardless of whether or no those pre-orders turn in sales? my free car will be delivered prior to those referrals actually purchasing ? Is that what you are saying? Where is all of the information on this ? I jumped into this quickly because the the concept appealed to me. But after mentioning it to a lawyer friend he asked these questions. What kind of business puts out an offer like this without terms and conditions? If they can’t reply to emails within 36 hours wha kind of business plan do they have. Responding to buyers is the only thing have to do at this time and they aren’t doing it well. If I don’t get answers soon I’ll direct my questions to the consumer protection agency and state attorney general. Yes it’s only one hundred dollars but I’ve doubled my investments in crypt currency every year. Meaning in two or three years that’s $400 to $800.
The 26 referrals have to have paid for their choice before you can be rewarded with a rewarded based model Aptera
Great deal if you can wait!
Since my ordered one will happen before that ... I can always donate or sell the reward vehicle
The offer only states that 26 referrals entitles one to a free car, period. There is no language that I have found that mentions 26 purchases. I have sent an email to them but have not received a reply. I want to see published terms and conditions!
I can only share what I heard / understood and seems fair to me ?
email@example.com may be your best platform?
That is where I started my inquiry but they hav not responded, day two.
Over 7,000 orders and a new factory to bring on line so “ I guess backlogged”
@Len the first thing should be to set up customer support, IT, and run everything past lawyers before asking people for money. That should have been a top priority. For people who claim to be successful business entrepreneurs with a top tier class of executives and years of experience? To me this looks like beginners.
Do pl dumb if u could get a free car with only 26 pre orders why would anyone buy one outright for 26000 $ when your buddies funded by u could get a car for 2600$ they have to be completed sales of pre-ordered cars you don't get refersl bonus of free car till 26 completed sales not pre-orders If you get your car first I imagine u pay up front for your car then get reimbursed for your referrals as they complete their sales atdelivery
A stated offer that clearly says a free car for 26 referrals that doesn’t mention a purchase required. Period. They have not published anything to the contrary or any terms or conditions. Yes it seems they have opened themselves up to a number of bad players. So, do they care? If not why? Maybe they have no interest because they won’t be around. I can’t believe any lawyer would have let any company put out such an offer. Makes me think they didn’t use a lawyer. Looks pretty shaky to me at this point especially since they haven’t responded to any of my inquiries. thei off does say fully refundable but nowhere on their site does it give you any way to cancel or request a refund.
@Jack Diamond When we announced our referral program, we published the attached information that specifically mentions that referrals must take delivery of their vehicles in order to qualify for the $1,000 credit. I added another link on the main page of our referral panel window to ensure it's as clear as possible. Regarding refunds, you may cancel and receive a refund at any time. If you have any further questions or concerns, you are more than welcome to email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Why would I buy now when after I already bought a car I no longer can earn the discount? I could take my car around town to promote it and sign up people far more effectively but since I can no longer get $1000 back why would I? Doesn't this policy discourage me from buying until after I give up doing referrals?
I may be able to display the thing in some very good places but I'd already own it... so why bother for some branded clothing etc. I have no need for a 2nd one.
Greed has killed many a business are you greedy or reasonable
What I’m about is a separate issue. If Aptera is a real business making a legitimate offer it should be presented in a legitimate business manner. I shouldn’t have to be asking these questions. It should all be spelled out on their website already. According to them in the past they’ve been at this for a long time. so there’s no excuse for the lack of detail in their offer or their business plan. They’re asking people to invest the least we can expect is a full disclosure of all details. Tomorrow I will pursue other methods including legal If they fail to respond to my inquiry. I will go very public in a big way about all of this.
Yes it would be good to have a clear answer before going to bat for them however getting bent out of shape and threatening over a benefit/gift is bad form.
I like the car and will tell my friends and if they choose to use my referral and I benefit from it... bonus.
It only makes sense that they get $30 off their pre-order, that is clear and that I get the $1000/per referal upon their purchase... anything else would be suicide or at least foolish and setting themselves up for a scam. Maybe I get reimbursed or offered a second vehicle, either way I'm good with it.
@Paul Weber I would buy the car in a heartbeat. But I see many warning signs of failure if not an outright scam. I can’t in good conscious ask anyone to put down money based on what I see here. Since my order number is 17,000+ I’m curious as to so few post in their forums. 17,000 is that many orders over several months so their inability to respond to a customer within two days is suspiciously inadequate.
