Capital One Acquires Lux eCommerce Company

Big news from the (literal) re:purpose fam. Our brother('s) company was just acquired by Capital One!

Let us explain...

Our founder, Ryan Landau, has a really cool brother, Andrew Landau. Andrew has made awesome strides across the Detroit startup and entrepreneurial community, including the acquisition of his latest company, Jewel

 

So, what's Jewel?

Jewel is a Detroit-based eCommerce startup that offers cash-back or rebates to online customers in search of luxury products. Users can shop Jewel's collection of luxury and high-end apparel, accessories and home goods, while also earning cash rebates between 2%-35%.

 

Tell me more about that acquisition...
