So I haven't been on the comments section for a while.
Good to hear that Ryan is taking the time to make this a very sturdy functional cooler.For the people complaining about everything Ryan send them the shell, battery, speaker, wheels ohh and plates and let them put it all together. Are you people serious?? You are supporting a great product and the team is trying to make the best product for you.If you are bored go for a bike ride, do laundry clean your house, please do not write idiotic comments on the board. Thanks Kappy
I laugh every time I look at comments. Its like some people live on a different planet. Frank, you're a trip with your comments, but right on. I always enjoy your responses. The coolest part of this has truly been the process. And the fact that I know absolutely no one else who is getting one. Still looking forward to it!
This is an invention that has been backed by investors. You are the investor, funding the creation of a new invention. Don't you want to say that you were part of a brilliant invention and not some slapped together piece of junk. I'm thrilled to be part of this innovative process. Most of us would never have the privilege of being part of a project like this. Kickstarter is changing the game for inventors and how a project gets funded. Yay!!! The only problem is having to deal with a bunch of impatient newbies who don't understand the process. As for me....take your time Ryan. I expect the best Cooler ever!
I'd think so too, but haven't heard of any mention yet. So if not, then there will be a market I'm sure!
I would think that there will be some sort or cap or cover piece for the lid to protect that area where the blender goes. Ryan seems to be putting some serious thought and effort into making sure the Coolest is the best that it can be so I doubt that area will be overlooked. I guess we will find out soon enough
If someone has access to a 3d printer and could get the dimensions of the blender base on top of the lid, some biggg money could be had at manufacturing a rubberized plug for it to keep out sand when not in use. Just saying..
The Internet has no brain.
It reacts to external input.
Garbage In/Garbage Out.
There seem to be a lot of garbage inputters here.
Hey it seems like I can't access pledge nanager
Is it July of this year? that would be great.
So when/if this magical cooler hits the general market how much is it gonna cost?
Upgrades mean expense. My guess is it never goes to the general consumer outside of this project.
I guess I will have a margarita for Thanksgiving.
I am SO excited to get my cooler, hopefully in July!! Loving the updates and watching progress. You guys are doing an amazing job, and I really appreciate the attention to quality and detail!! Keep up the great work!
Anybody else sort of hoping all the complainers didn't get their surveys filled out?
You need to contact customer service.
I tried to pay for my shipping but couldnt get it to go through. What should i do in order to make sure i can get my cooler. Im excited to show it off.
It would be nice if Coolest had prototypes with all the flaws that they could send the impatient backers right now. I appreciate the effort Ryan is putting into this and don't mind waiting a few extra months for a great cooler. How often do you people buy coolers? Hopefully this is a 10 year cooler for me.. Whats a few extra months people!
@Victoria, doubtful. You'll get 2 of the upgraded batteries, I'm sure.
So, my question is since I pledged already for an extra battery with this new update for a new and improved battery do I owe more than what I already paid?
Last year? Haha. Another winner who can't comprehend.
Jimmy, have you contacted customer service to get help?
Just send me my basic cooler that was supposed to have been shipped last year. Quit the damn "updates and add-ons." SPRING HAS SPRUNG; bring it on.
Can I just say how great it is to constantly be updated about the status of the cooler! If only all businesses, no matter the industry or product sold, would just keep heir customers updated like the Coolest gang has. The majority of consumers just want to know that their order/item is being handled and to have an expectation for delivery. Thank yall for doing this
Anyone else having major issues trying to login to the Coolest Pledgemanager Site. Been trying off and on for 3 weeks. Keeps telling me my email address and password isn't correct. Even tried the password reset option but never receive the email. This is frustrating.
@ Ed - Log in to your survey and you can check. https://coolest.pledgemanager.com/projects/coolest/
They should get back to you within a few hours!
Can't wait for them to ship! How do we confirm the address you have for us is correct?
Thanks! I've been trying, but no response!
Erik, email them. Support@Coolest.com.
You can also contact them on Facebook and Twitter.
HELP!!! My survey link doesn't work and no one is getting back to me! The survey manager is saying my email isn't valid, yet it's the same email they're sending all correspondence to! Love the Coolest and want to make sure I don't miss anything!
This is by far the most professionally updated Kickstarter production I have seen (next to Pebble). Well done Coolest team!
Totally agree with you guys, some people thought this was Amazon or something and not paying for the research and development/production assistance with "backers" recieving gifts (again their called gifts not items you "purchased"). And to the people complaining "just ship it enough with the technology updates", when the battery catches fire or blows because it pulled more power then required you would be the first to call foul play.. I want these to be the best quality products and if it takes his team trial and errors then so be it. I also wish I backed enough for two gifts though.
@David, well said. I couldn't agree more.
@Ryan-Gemma Smith, you should seriously do some research before posting anything here. It was in December that all of us got a email from ryan saying the new estimated ship date starts in July. A simple read through of the updates and comments is all you needed to do. Also you need to know that you never ordered or purchased anything. You pledged money to help fund a idea and to help ryan start the coolest brand. The coolest is essentially a thank you gift for that. This has been said and repeated numerous times over the last 4-6 months. Which you clearly never read or saw. And why you never saw any of the email updates is also very strange. I take it you have no clue about the survey either? Because you chose to not stay informed during this process, you will be in that last group to receive your Coolest. Which means, rad of now, towards the end of summer. Assuming there are no more delays. Which are still very possible. Try to stay informed from here on out. It might help you from posting such ignorant comments in he future.
I'm dissapoonted it's not being delivered as mentioned in the initial Kickstarter camapign but people need a reality check. This is funding for a project. Things never go to plan. Ryan has been more than giving in his updates and information compared to other businesses. It is shocking how many people appear to have not checked their emails, dont know what the survey is for or had a clue how to correctly contact support for the project with any questions. Ryan and his team are already going through stress getting this to market so the last thing they need is a bunch of completely ignorant and uptight people giving him more stress just because they feel they are special in someway.
I need to change my delivery address. Can anyone please point me in the right direction to do this.
Too bad this cannot ship before the 4th of July... Just get them into production please.
I'm pretty sure I did my survey a while back but whenever I try to sign in it says the gnome is sending a reset to my email but I never get it?? I've checked the spam and bulk folders and nothing ?? Anyone else having this problem?
Yeah I got a simple question.
WHEN AM I GOING TO RECIEVE MY COOLER?
First ordered some time back in 2014. You said first ones will be shipped in Feb. then changed to April and yet still no cooler or email saying that it has shipped. I have already paid for this and yet I have nothing.
@Loren, I have that same regret. I wish I would have bought at least 2. Maybe we can talk Ryan into a discount code for Kickstarter backers to purchase a second one once it hits the retail market
@Cory, you do understand that the Coolest is in production right now right? And that the estimated shipping date is July, as of now. The upgrades, like the latest battery upgrade, isn't delaying that estimated ship date. Basically there is no Coolest to ship as it isn't made yet. This is a process. Nothing ridiculous about it at all. The fact that Ryan is deciding to make things on the Coolest better, rather than being ok with average, is a great thing. I'm not sure why you or anybody else would want the Coolest to be rushed out with inferior parts instead of being the best that it can be. As @Loren said, just be patient, grab a beer, sit back and relax. Being upset won't get the Coolest to you any faster.
Yeah, I have a question. When are we gonna stop hearing all this BS and actually got the f'n cooler. Every time I get an email it's another great upgrade, but no cooler. This is ridiculous!
My ONLY regret is that I didn't buy 2 Coolest coolers! And Frank Cruz, just want to say as a fellow backer, I appreciate you keeping it real on here and helping to set wayward backers strait! I love it! Everyone just needs to show a moderate amount of patience, as the production schedule has not changed since December! Sit back, relax, have a beer, and you'll have your Coolest with plenty of time to use it this summer! Cheers!
Technology changes daily. I am tired of waiting for my cooler. Just send it out please.
Added the second speaker! Can't wait for this to arrive hopefully by summers end.
I have been trying to login to take the survey but can't get the "gnomes" to send me my password... help!!??
@Dleec19 It's alright if they don't complete the survey by today. Just means that their cooler is not in the first production run and there will be further delays to receiving it. You have until June 6 to buy an extra speaker or battery and/or change your address.
Well, if you all didn't know it's tax day! And last day for doing your survey! Any changes or want to buy an extra speaker or battery, best do it today.
All I know is that there seem to be quite a few people who had absolutely no clue what they were doing when they decided to back a project here. Those same people who are clueless about the ship date are going to be here crying up a storm when they realize that they never completed the survey. Should be fun (not really) to see them all here in a couple months whining about this being a scam and how they didn't know about the survey. Oh well. What can you do
Starr you haven't heard anything else? That is your fault. Ryan sent a update in DECEMBER saying new estimated shipping date is July. All you have to do is check your email or, come on to Kickstarter and check the updates, or comments, or go to Coolest.com. I hope you realize that you need to have the survey completed by tomorrow. Obviously since you have refused to stay informed during this process, I'm sure you probably haven't completed the survey. And you probably won't. So you will have a much longer wait than the rest of us. Have fun with that.
When are we going to receive our coolers. I was told in February, it is now April and I haven't heard anything else. Please let me know. Thanks.
Hopefully @Elyse completed the survey. Very doubtful judging by her previous comment. Has only herself to blame
@ Elyse, where have you been? Did you not keep up with the Updates?
It took some time (a week) but they responded to my msg from KS directly to my email. giving me the instructions and all. So its all good. They do have large orders and backers to get back too...
