      Although I have received my cooler my parents have not. I don’t quite understand how you can be updating your Instagram with a promotion of free shipping and a extra Bluetooth speaker with every purchase when backers haven’t even received theirs yet. Also went to use mine a couple weekends ago I went to charge my battery for the blender and it wouldn’t hold a charge or work. Lovely.

      Hi- I have my Coolest and have a question about the speaker. It is making a particular sound that is clearly supposed to indicate something, but I don't know what it is. Is there someone who could contact me so I can ask? I didn't see it addressed in the manual. Thank you!

      I would like to get information on the 3rd quarter update status report. You stated in your last update you would provide quarterly updates, yet it is now Nov. 20th and your last update was in June. Thank you - Backer #55,665

      Is there anyway to get the extra Speaker and batteries ordered? if I'm not going to get the cooler, at least you can send the extra speaker and battery, so I can pair with the friend who bough his on Amazon (He mocks me for not getting the one via kickstarter. :( )

      Can't comment on the FB page- I guess you cowards blocked me. I only asked if you were sending any units- even one a month- to backers. Be honest and publish a plan or say you never intend to live up to your promises.

    19. Kevin Tyler 4 days ago

      Still no way to update our addresses. I've moved 5 times since you said you would deliver. I suppose since there is no way to update addresses, that means you have no intention of delivering what we paid for. Congratulations, excellent theft. I find it funny you need to leave a be respectfull and considerate comment when you are nothing but a thief.

      Last month a cashier in PA who stole $13M went to prison for the next 8 years.
      After over three years of being remarkably patient. I've had it and will now start working with the DoJ.

      To take $13M on promises...then ask for MORE for better batteries, then ask for MORE if you actually want it sent to you (maybe), then say you need to sell them to other people so you can send them to the people who already paid....You guys really should be joining her in prison for fraud.
      It's outrageous!

      Wow I just checked my date sent you $$ in Aug 2014 guess maybe in 10 more years might see my cooler. Saw this project on the Today show way back then I guess besides them you did the same to everyone that gave you money. Can't trust people like you anymore. I want my $$$$.

      I have now crossed the 3-year threshold. Even the USPS can't be blamed for this delay. WTF!!! You advertise them, have them in stores etc... and yet an ORIGINAL BACKER still does not have his cooler. Ryan, are you a child or what? You have more excuses than a 9th grader with straight F's. And right now you are a failure in my eyes. Suck it

    27. Bobby Wesley Rackley 5 days ago

      Still nothing?!?!?!?!?! Absolutely no updates and no cooler! I'm tired of excuses! Ship the item we paid hard earned money for! You have them in stock on your own website along with countless other retail sites!

      ... and "be respectful and considerate"? Really? It's a two-way street ya know!

      If anyone cares I did finally receive my cooler the day after the DOJ told me after they checked with Coolest it should be on its way. Funny, it is still in an un-opened box in my garage. It is like a prized Unicorn; lol. Still can not bring myself to open it. Probably will soon to make sure it is in good shape; the whole experience has really soured me regarding this project.

      This was the longest kickstarter I have ever invested in. Makes me realize just how much hype this getting in on the ground floor is. I don’t reckon I’ll ever see my $185 back or my coolest. We helped you start your company. Figure it out faster please.

      Ryan, how many more cooler have you send to your backers this guess
      At least be a man and tell me that you screwed me out of a few hundred.

      Lauren Poloski;

      To check what your backer # is just go to the Kickstarter home page after you log in.
      top right corner you will see a blue globe, click on that and you will get a list of projects you have backed.
      Click on where it says "VIEW ALL" and you will see a full list of what you back
      Scroll to where you see Coolest Cooler and click on that and you will see the information your backer number is at the bottom
      hope this helps

      In an email I received back in August, your support team informed me that you were going to do quarterly updates per the DOJ and that there will be an update in September.
      The last update was in June and it is now November....
      As backer # 46,202 I am NOW demanding an update as to what is going on and where are you with our orders also I am not happy with the DOJ's decision on this 3 year time table as those that filed will get their rewards first..
      Again I get pushed back to the point I may never see my Cooler if I live another 3 years
      As this was my very first backing and to date I have backed around 60 projects with 4 just backed last month and 4 more just pledged for funding in the next 2 months and I have received 95% of all that I have pledged
      You have failed miserably in returning messages hopefully I will receive my cooler soon and hope you never do another Kick Starter Project again since I won't back you in the future and I hope nobody else does
      I was pleased at the beginning when you answered messages now you dodge everyone who has messaged you maybe except those inconsiderate people who paid the extra 90.oo to cut ahead of the line
      I surely hope that either you or you support team gives me a reply before Thanksgiving Holiday or I will be in contact with the Oregon DOJ informing that you are not abiding by their decision
