Ulta Beauty is expanding its popular Ultamate Rewards loyalty program.


The retailer is partnering with  Alliance Data Systems Corp. Alliance will develop and manage the Ultamate Rewards Credit Card, which is designed to enhance the benefits of the chain’s loyalty program.


Alliance will provide private-label and co-branded credit card services for Ulta, the largest beauty retailer in the United States, operating 886 stores nationwide.


The Ultamate Rewards co-brand credit card program will leverage the MasterCard network so card members can use it anywhere MasterCard is accepted around the world.
