      John, I'e been trying to reach you to solve this problem and no answer...
      360$us for a blanket that suppose to cost 199$us.
      I will write my message again in the case you or the people who work with you didn't see it!

      I'm really upset. After 10 months of waiting, I received a notification from DHL about the arrival of the blanket in Chile. But in addition to the $ 58 US$ for shipment concept added before to my initial contribution (169US$ + 30US$ estimated for concept of shipping) now they are charging me another 110 us $ to be able to free customs from the famous blanket. I already wrote to Jhon Fiorentino asking about the shipment in a couple of occasions and I did not receive any response. I hope that by exposing my situation in this way I will get some kind of attention from the creators. Because to the $ 257 US$ that finally involved the purchase of the blanket, now it was transformed into more than 360 US$. and for that price I would not even have bought it. I feel totally scammed by the creators of this project. and I request publicly that they contact me about the situation. The last time I wrote to them, in a private and direct message, as they suggested to me on Kickstarter, I requested the return of my contribution, and I never received any response. I never imagined that supporting a campaign on Kickstarter would be such a frustrating experience.

      Dear John,
      Today UPS came at my door and I had to pay 85 euro on tax!!
      I really cannot accept that! I already paid 30 dollars for the shipment and I waited almost 8 months...
      Please note that including the tex the Blanket will cost over 300 dollars!!
      Can you solve this please?

      Be on

      January 26, still no blanket. No update on the broken shipping notification. You all really know how to try a person’s patience.

      Is this when you knew about the size change? I’m betting it was. Keep digging yourself a bigger hole.

      Hi! I completely understand that orders received were more than quadruple orders expected. But also please understand that I was lead to believe I would receive my Early Bird blanket by end of October and then by the Holidays and now by the end of January. Can you please let me know where my blanket falls in the queue? If things are going as they have been I may move before my blanket ships and this concerns me. Greatly. Thank you

    12. Michele Vetter on

      So, let me get this straight. You SAW the blanket while you were there in October and couldn’t update us on the size then? What kind of shot show are you running.

      I got my blanket and .... IT WAS SOOOO WORTH THE WAIT!!! You will never be satisfied with a normal blanket again. Heaven.

      Wanted to let you all know that I now have updated info from UPS saying that my shipment left the Secaucus facility this morning, and it is scheduled for delivery on Thursday by 8pm. I was a backer in the 2000's... so don't give up hope!

      Good to know they've started shipping. I'm in the 20,000s, so likely it won't arrive in time for Christmas,'s for ME, so that's okay =)

      Just got a tracking number confirming blanket on way. Was one of first backers so looks like first shipments are finally going out :)

      I don't know why they're not active on here, but they are on Twitter @gravityblankets. I was told today via Twitter that around 14,000 will be arriving in the US is week for delivery. Shipments came in yesterday and today. I'm in the 15,000s so was told mine should be going out next week.

      Like everyone commenting here, a current update would be nice. I'm starting to wonder if I need to file with my credit card for a refund.

      I would really like a update , personally this is getting out of hand
      Way past due date for shipping, no contact in 2 months and past contact has been mostly excuse filled.

      If we do not get our blankets before the holidays , I will be seeking to get my money back
      sorry but its either a scam or poorly organized

      Try some of these options:
      1. Posting to John Fiorentino's kickstarter page
      2. Contacting Futurism - the company stated in the FAQ as the Sales, PR & Marketing
      3. Contacting Backerkit - the company that is used to tracker backers/customers for a project
      4. Report the project to Kickstarter - on the bottom of the campaign page, there a "Report Project" button - click on that, then check " Post-funding Issues - The creator is not communicating and the project status is unclear."
      or Do ALL of them like me!

      Hoping we don't sound like a bunch of broken records, but we would love an update. Remember, we all have anxiety, so frequent updates, even if there's nothing new happening, would be really appreciated. Especially on a platform like Kickstarter, where we all secretly worry about scams as it is.

    39. CAR on

      I just now found this on Twitter...

      At 11:33 CST today, I found the Gravity Blanket twitter account, and a tweet from them that says that the first wave of blankets arrived in the US "today". It also says that your blanket arrival date depends on when you ordered your blanket.
      The tweet is listed at "21 hours ago"- so some of the blankets are in the US as of yesterday (Monday, Dec 4th).

      That seems like pretty good news for some of us. Yes?

      As with everyone else, just wondering if we are going to have a Christmas Miracle here and have our gravity blankets delivered before then. We heard from you on November 1st here we are on December 5th, please give us an update

    41. Deb Grande Preachuk on

      Any updates? I genuinely believe my blanket will be delivered before Christmas as promised, as I bought mine as a gift for my daughter.

      Please let us know what to expect as the days are counting down and many of us need to make alternative purchases if it isn't delivered on time.

      Original estimate on the campaign was to fulfill orders within 6-8 weeks.
      I think that was a typo, it was meant to say more than 6 months with 8 weeks between updates... �

      Hoping to get this by Christmas. Going to start looking at backup plans.

      Hi- We ordered in May, and have yet to receive our blankets. Can you let us know the progress. Do you think we might receive by Christmas? If not, that is ok, but would like an update please. Thank you! Excited for them to arrive.
