Took delivery on Monday 12/28, yes, one of the 2 blue ones they had last week with the $99 lease special (with quite a bit down though, so I negotiated slightly better terms for myself). I gave them a VPP code, but my contract/bill of sale doesn't mention it and Nissan is telling me to use my code before it expires, so I'm not sure they used it. I don't see why not, as that's money from Nissan but they gave me the 0 down with ___ payment I asked for, so no complaints.

Started the online process with both rebates, hopefully my temporary registration will suffice for them. Thanks!

As a last resort, consider using that 120 20A circuit for an aftermarket EVSE that can pull 16 amps at 120 volts. You should be able to add about 3% charge per hour with that setup, as opposed to about 2% per hour with the Nissan EVSE on a 120 volt circuit.
Thanks. Once commuting starts back up again, we will see how badly we need to upgrade anything. I would still need to run a new circuit from that 20A breaker to the front of the house instead of the backyard. (Breaker panel is on opposite side of the house from the garage).

My breaker panel is 100% full. I did fill the last spot a few years ago with a 20A 120V breaker that was meant for a backyard project that didn't materialize, so I could perhaps use that circuit... Maybe swapping things around I could get 240V without upgrading to 200A service? That said, 100A service with a LEAF, central air, etc, probably should be upgraded. Natural gas for the heat, stove, and dryer, so only 1 existing 240V circuit in the house, just the central air/furnace circuit (though the heater isn't drawing much electricity, it is one unit with the AC).
If able , it may be possible to free up some slots on your breaker panel using some “tandem” breakers. That’s what I did for this 60 amp sub panel. See the “tandem” breakers on the lower left side which allowed me space to put in a 40a 2340v breaker for my Leaf.
