      Backer #24,386

      I invoke my rights under Kickstarter's Terms of Use:
      https://www.kickstarter.com/terms-of-use/oct2012
      "Project Creators are required to fulfill all rewards of their successful fundraising campaigns or refund any Backer whose reward they do not or cannot fulfill."
      I demand a full refund for my pledge amount.

      Yikes, my backer number is over 40,000. I'm stubborn, and hoping it'll magically show up someday... I'm not posting negativity or hate everywhere like some of these backers because I still want them to be just successful enough to send my unit, lol.

      To everyone trying to invoke rights...
      Kickstarter doesn't care and have spaced themselves as far from this as they can.
      So it will get you nothing, also other than us (the unfulfilled) this is a dead chat board.
      That asshat Ryan said as much in the craptastic March update, he also said he will not give any other updates other than yearly.
      Also the whole DOJ and lawsuits were settled giving him an additional three, yes 3 years to fulfill our orders.
      So...
      Your ice and items will long perish before the (not) Coolest never show up by 2021!
      Again, I am a backer that didn't get any of my order.
      However not everyone on Kickstarter is a piece of shit like Ryan and his fucktards.
      I have successfully back and received many items since.
      He is just the scum that taints it all.
      At this point give up on move on, maybe one day in three or more years...
      If we are not dead, moved or he hasn't finally gone bankrupt.
      We will get a delivery or come home to an outdated (not) Coolest.
      If you are beyond desperate for one, order one on Amazon and say you didn't get it.
      They will refund you, you will also fuck Ryan just a bit more too!

      backer #17,046. Not much faith left that I will ever get this cooler or my extra battery. Is he even sending the updates the Oregon DOJ required him too?

      The company has done countless interview resulting in countless articles stating they have about 20,000 backer orders left to fill, that their actual product costs are $235 (including shipping) versus the backer paid $185 (or in my case $200 because I explicitly paid $15 shipping). So, math: (235-185) * 20,000 = $1,000,000 needed to deliver coolers at cost. Not a single investor is willing to pony up $1MM to get this monkey off the company's back? Hmmmm.

      #27900 and actually went for the extras
      Thank you for reaching out. We have you down for the following items:
      1 Classic Orange Coolest Cooler
      1 Extra Battery
      1 Extra Speaker
      1 Pitcher/Plate set

      Man, do i feel great 4 yrs into this crap.

    8. Fabrizzio Velazquez 3 days ago

      If you can't deliver, why not just reimburse us? you are manufacturing obviously, so just take the hit, instead of transferring it to us.

      Really?! I'm backer 31,502 and still nada. How do we not have our product yet? How are the shipments determined? (Obviously not backer number order). I just want a refund. The story is always that is actually costs more to make them than what we paid, but that's nuts. If that were the case, just refund our money. I'm $240 in and waiting for years....

      #56,339. No updates and have tried multiple times to contact with new info. I get no response from them. Patiently waiting for 4 years now with no signs of ever receiving this thing.

    20. Keith Woodson on

      So, you have enough money, for R&D, to come up with new products. However, you don’t have enough money, to send out the, paid for, coolers. What a surprise.

    21. Paul Baldwin on

      Why in the hell would they think anyone would send them $179 for a soft cooler?

      Still waiting here, too...what gives? Backer #6,763. Seriously...how much longer, especially since you are selling them on Amazon.

    30. Preston Swann on

      I got my cooler after the initial funding and have been very pleased, BUT now I need to replace the battery and Based on these comments, I’m worried about sending them $50 for a new one. 🤔

      @JenniferRosa - Unfortunately you can invoke all you want, Kickstarter sympathizes with the unfulfilled backers on this project, but they cannot make Ryan do anything. There have been numerous lawsuits and those are the only people that actually get anything out of Ryan. Ryan himself couldn't care less about the rest of us.

    45. Dallas Monroe on

      Backer #8,833 - There are more and more backers that are giving up on ever getting a cooler. I am loosing my patience on this also..

      Backer #15,477 (July 12, 2014) - yet another July 4th come and gone, no Coolest and still $200 poorer.

      Does the Kickstarted Terms actually have teeth to get backers anything? It's not looking likely. This has really soured me on backing any projects in the future.

      This company doesn't care. They will never give us what we paid for. I will NEVER back anything on Kickstarter again!!!! Believe me, I have a big mouth and I tell everyone. No one I know will support Kickstarter or buy a Coolest Cooler.

      Another 4th of July gone by with no coolest cooler. Goodness at least give us more frequent updates to get our hopes up and at least think we didn't waste our money.
