Gosh, everyone reacting like I'm doing something sinister here.

I bought a 2018 Nissan Leaf and it came with features and incentives, like power seats, A/C, and a rebate from my local utility. Another one was free charging for 2 years. I paid for this, trust me it was priced into the out the door pricing one way or another.

Fast forward 8 months, I bought a 2019 Nissan Leaf. It came with similar features including another 2 year charging credits.

The dealership I traded in the 2018 didn't negotiate me trading in the NCTC and as a result I currently have TWO VALID accounts for fee charging. All I'm doing is offering someone the opportunity to utilize the remaining balance on one of those cards. It's a valid account for a single car for the next year, I don't think this violates anything.

It's not like I'm leaving the card at a charger with a sign suggesting everyone that drives up; "Here, use this card and steal electricity"

You can call it sinister if you please but lezz be real.

You ARE violating the terms of agreement for the perk.

ChargePoint support confirmed that the best way to link EZ-Charge card to the CP account is to add the two letters "OE" in front of the EZ serial number. This will make the serial to be 10 characters. Works without having to call in for them to manually add it.

The No Charge to Charge card has a unique serial number.
I did try that, using the number on the EZ-Charge NCTC card, but it said that the system couldn't find the serial number. Did you have to call and have them add the EZ-Charge number to their system before it would let you add it to your account?

Awesome! That worked perfectly. Thank you for finding and sharing that information.

I'm pretty bummed that they discontinued this program, doubly so that my dealership didn't seemingly know that it ended. Bought my car yesterday and they gave me the card, told me about the free two year charging thing, which would have been a nice perk. The program expired two months ago... I'll contact the dealership to see if there's anything they can do about it but I don't expect that they will, and it's not like it was mentioned in the purchase contract. At the very least, hopefully they'll stop handing them out and getting people's hopes up.

1) they shouldn't stop handing them out because you can register with several charging providers and only have to carry the one card.

2) Obviously they should have to told you the program expired in July.

3) Unless you got something in writing, you don't have much of a chance. They might offer you a free charge up and car wash.

Good to know that the card still has some use. I guess that means it has to be registered with each network separately, since the EZ-Charge website doesn't seem to allow it to be activated at all.

And yeah, not expecting much. I dropped them a note about it, as they talked it up about having one free charge per day - just a matter of retraining their staff, I guess. Our dealership already offers free charging during their business hours and they have quite a few chargers, so I figure they'll just remind me that I can come by any time and use their chargers. Can't fault them for not doing their part to do what they can to make life easier for EV owners.
