Alliance Data Announces Long-term Renewal Agreement With Gander Mountain

DALLAS, Feb. 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Alliance Data Systems Corporation (NYSE: ADS), a leading provider of loyalty and marketing solutions derived from transaction-rich data, today announced its Retail Services business has signed a long-term agreement to continue providing the co-brand credit card program for multichannel retailer Gander Mountain, operator of the largest network of stores specializing in fishing, hunting, camping, marine, and outdoor lifestyle and active performance products for the serious outdoor enthusiast. Established in 1960, Gander Mountain Company, headquartered in St. Paul, Minn., offers national, regional and local brands and private label merchandise through its 119 stores in 24 states, as well as through a robust e-commerce site and its Overton's catalog brand.

"The strategic program offering Alliance Data brings to the table—from their card program and loyalty capabilities, to advanced analytics and marketing expertise—continues to make them the right partner to help Gander Mountain meet our sales and growth goals," said Robert Specht, vice president of finance and controller for Gander Mountain. "The Gander Mountain customer enjoys a special relationship with our brand, both in-store and online, and our credit card program helps reinforce the strength of that relationship, driving long-term customer loyalty and sales. We look forward to extending our partnership with Alliance Data to ensure the Gander Mountain co-brand credit card program continues to deliver additional value to our best customers—our cardholders."

Alliance Data will continue to deliver a marketing-driven co-branded credit card program that recognizes and rewards Gander Mountain cardholders with a tiered loyalty program offering free-merchandise rewards based on all dollars spent with Gander Mountain and Overton's, gas and grocery purchases, and on all other transactions. The program also offers flexible financing options and other cardholder-exclusive perks designed to drive brand loyalty and repeat purchases. In addition, the Gander Mountain credit card design will soon be customizable, allowing individual cardholders to display their own favorite photographs on the card plastic.

"The Gander Mountain name truly stands for quality and superior customer service. We're thrilled to continue this valued partnership, driving long-term loyalty and increasing sales through the co-brand card program," said Melisa Miller, president of Alliance Data Retail Services. "Through this extended relationship, we will deliver even deeper value to Gander Mountain customers, resulting in overall brand and card-program growth. Together with Gander Mountain, we will continue to drive brand affinity through tailored payment promotions and customized marketing campaigns that reinforce Gander Mountain's well-respected brand."

Partner Advisors served as program advisor to Gander Mountain during contract negotiations.
