Since its seed funding, Kudos has grown to over 200k users and increased its annual checkout Gross Merchandise Value to $200m.

With the new funding Kudos plans to:

“Consumers want to get the most value as they manage budgets and multiple credit cards; Kudos makes it simple with an easy-to-use app and extension,” says Tikue Anazodo CEO of Kudos.
