I've been on the $50 EA & Ford plug and chg network for two months. Drive up, plug in, press continue on chg station and away it go's @ .31 cents per kw.
I assume you signed up early (around Jan/Feb)? The upgrade did show up as available for a short period back then before it actually worked at any EA stations. Then a few months later it started working at the stations but they'd already pulled the upgrade as an option to sign up for because of the billing issues. Now we're still stuck at that status until they turn the sign-up back on..

I didn't want to sign up for the upgrade until it actually started working. Now that it's working, we can't sign up for it. 😖

Your right on. I signed up 1st or 2nd day and I had already put a credit card in my ford wallet so I think that was all there was to it. But it didn't work. Called ford, they started a ticket. Four wks or so later it was working and has ever since with no issues. You can probably save the yearly cost with one long road trip.

Pretty sure others that had a credit card in their Ford wallet said it wasn't working at the station back then either. I don't think anyone was getting it to work. Until the first post in this thread from March 2 reported that it finally worked. But by then Ford had yanked the sign-up.

I called them like a month or two ago, and they said the sign-up was still on hold due to internal "billing issues". Still stuck there.

I'm also beginning to wonder if the sign-up for the discount is only offered to us around the month of our BOCN subscription anniversary? Since it's an annual subscription, and needs a BOCN subscription as well, it makes some sense they might only offer sign-ups at times they can sync.

I bought my car in Feb 2021 (and my 2-yr BOCN trial ends Feb 2023). Maybe each Feb is the only time I can add the 25% discount to it?
