If You Haven’t Received Your Survey…

If you’re a backer and you haven’t received your survey for some reason (sent to whatever email you have on file with Kickstarter), please check your spam filter first, but then if you still don’t see it, please email Backerkit support and they should be able to re-send your survey support@backerkit.com.

If you go here, and you’re logged in, you should be able to see which email address Kickstarter has on file for you.)
