      Terrible communication and service. My blanket was delivered months ago to the wrong address. WHY WOULD YOU HAVE PEOPLE UPDATE THEOR ADDRESSES IF UOU AREN'T GOING TO USE THEM?!?! There is no way for me to retrieve it. AVOID these people at all costs in the future. Worst campaign of all time.

      Still have not received any reply regarding my change of addresss and have sent multiple emails. Confused on when I will actually receive my blanket.

      I received both of my blankets, however one is fine and one is not. One of the blankets, the sand does not stay in the individual pockets. When I lift up the blanket, all the sand travels toward the bottom and so on. Not sure what to do at this point. I have not been home for the last 3 months and this is the first time I get to try the blankets. So far, the one that works feels quite nice.

      I also backed two blankets (couples pack), never received a thing. This looks more and more like a scam. I tried to get in touch one more time by email.. If I don't hear I will initiate credit card chargeback.

      You should be ashamed of yourselves for deleting all the backers who have made a claim here that they are upset. You need to be out of business.

      Be warned, the dozens of upset backers with complaints on this comment board looks like they have all been deleted. This is a huge problem!!. Many, many, backers have asked for refunds. The blankets were sent the completely wrong size that was posted. They are shoddy. This is a a big problem and this should be shut down. Please go report this guy to the authorities. This is unreal.

      If any of you are feeling upset, head over to the general comments section and see my email to their customer service.

      Perhaps if we get serious about a class action lawsuit things may change. This is a sham company that is taking our money. I don't tolerate that well!

      Here's the email I sent.

      Hi JD,

      I still have not heard from you regarding my refund. You can imagine this is beyond frustrating to deal with this back and forth, especially considering I have followed your company’s policies stated per GB’s website. You currently have my products in your warehouse. As I’ve already shown you, I have proof of all of this.

      Legally, your company will lose this battle. The product arrived well after both the expected shipping date, and promised delivery date. It also came in altered dimensions compared to the dimensions promised in the product page on your kickstarter website. Therefore, your kickstarter campaign had me - and thousands of others - pay for a product that was falsely advertised and shipped with a significant delay. I have made every good faith effort to follow procedures for a return, but have had consistently poor customer service regarding this.

      I’ve seen the kickstarter comments and know that several others feel they have been cheated for the same justified reasons.

      If I don’t see a refund by March 1st, 2018 I will be contacting the Better Business Bureau and Federal Trade Commission. I have already opened a charge dispute with my credit card company. I wouldn’t be surprised to see a class action suit against GB’s given the circumstances of taking $4.7m in revenue from cheating customers.

      Please credit my account the $338 immediately,

      Please let me know when I can expect the blanket. I have no idea of where it may be. Ordered it in April/May last year! Extra cost for postage to Australia.
      No reply to my last query emailed to - contact@gravityblankets.com on 12 January.Very frustrating, hope it's not just a con.

      Still waiting. This is ridiculous.

    22. Jason Potter on

      Got my blanket and it is crap quality. The weighted blanket is inside of a second shell. problem is that my 20 pound inner blanket is tied at only 6 points to the outer blanket so it does not stay lined up to the outer one and after a week of use the weak inner ties holding the 20 pound inner blanket in place broke off and now its just a lump inside. No contact of course. I recommend you do a charge back. Definitely low quality and not worth the price and no customer service. Bad on kickstarter for allowing this.

      Also an early backer. Received email with tracking number. Then it was voided. No response from multiple emails. Think it is safe to say the John Fiorentino is full of it.

      I have received no tracking number, no response to email, and no blanket. Starting to wonder is this a scam?

      Backer #24,661 and haven't received my blanket... I have attempted to contact on 6 different platforms and gotten no responses these last 3 months. At first I thought it was my address change but now I'm seeing all the comments here - realizing everyone is experiencing the same thing.

      CONTACT YOUR BACKERS, JOHN FIORENTINO.

      I still haven’t received a tracking number. Where does the project stand? It seems like many people are still looking for their blankets. Please provide another status update. Thank you.

      Has anyone actually received their blanket? Starting to wonder about this one... I’ve had no news, no tracking number, nothing except a bounced email when I tried changing my address per instructions.... I opened a ticket with KickStarter support, but they just suggest trying to communicate with the project... so still trying...

      I submitted a change of address to this email, AND received confirmation of the address change two months ago, and yet my blankets were shipped to my old address. Now it's going to cost me at least $100 in shipping to get them delivered to me, because YOU didn't live up to your promise about changing addresses. Additionally, I never even received a shipping notice! Just got a text from my old roommate saying I had packages delivered, with NO notice that a shipment had been made. I regret ever backing this kickstarter!

      Received email reply yesterday regarding the cancelled tracking number, saying they were working on generating a new one. Blanket arrived this morning.

      It's helter skelter but perhaps they just need time.

      I just paid over $50 in fees to have my blanket shipped. I am not happy. The blanket is great. It just ended up costing much more than I wanted.
