Treasured Shopping

1 Nov

This website is truly a jewel — www.usejewel.com

It’s an e-commerce site where you shop for luxury goods and receive cash back. Detroiter Andrew Landau is the website founder. The offices are based in Detroit, but the shopping spans the globe. Jewel partners with 350 brands from high-end department stores to indie labels. Some of the partners include: Neiman Marcus, Barney’s New York, Lululemon, Tumi, Tory Burch, Charlotte Tilbury.

The blogger the luxe strategist, explains the process simply here:

  1. Make sure you’re on the Jewel website and signed in.
  2. Find the store you want to shop at, then click the blue ‘Shop Now’ button. This will kick you over to the actually retailer site now.
  3. Complete your purchase in one session, and make sure you’re not paying with points or gift cards (these will not qualify for cash back, as I learned).
  4. Within 72 hours, your shopping trip and cash back amount should appear in Jewel.

Your check arrives quarterly.

Landau, a former Google employee, is a bona fide entrepreneur as he founded Chalkfly.com and sold it in 2014. This site is his latest venture.

Landau knows his customer base. “Every one, no matter what their wealth is, wants a good deal.”

Grant Garbinski and Blake Dagenais combine art, story telling and commerce with their online site Maloh Art. These two college juniors created a company that sells artwork online, but what makes this site unique is the ability to find out what inspired and influenced the artist. For the artists, Maloh provides branding and marketing services.

At Maloh Art, every piece of art has a narrative, and they share the artists’ stories with the world. “It is not enough to sell beautiful art work; we ensure that our customers can share in the story.”

The butterfly and seahorse above are by Megan Swoyer. Read Megan’s art story here.

Being savvy entrepreneurs, they are also on kickstarter.
