US-based retailer JCPenney has signed a multi-year extension agreement with Synchrony. The extension regards management of its credit card programmes and related services.

The new deal expands the companies’ 20-year partnership. Furthermore, this resulted in a private label credit card programme and a JCPenney Mastercard Dual Card.

Extending a partnership

The two also used data analytics to gain new customer insights and personalise customer experience.

The extended collaboration will enable Synchrony to manage and service payment cards at more than 860 of the retailer’s stores in the US and Puerto Rico. It also includes online.

JCPenney vice president of credit James Ward said: “The JCPenney credit card is an integral component of our loyalty programme, serving as a powerful savings tool for our customers to get access to enticing benefits only available to cardholders.

“We are pleased to renew our agreement with Synchrony, helping us deliver flexible financing options and valuable benefits to our best customers.”
