I got the card to use as a great way to build credit , knowing I would also get use of buying products I like. First time I wanted to make a payment , I couldn't not make one in the store ! Plus, customer service is horrible / non informative information.. they didn't care about the inconvenience at all. I like ulta but I wish I never got this card.

Nothing but problems

I signed up for the Ulta mastercard, received the card and was able to use it for Ulta.com, I also transferred a balance only to find it took over 30 days to clear when my other card only took a week to process which was the first issue, then I tried to use it at a store one day and it was declined. I had to use another payment method, this happened several more times at various stores, bad chip etc.. so I called and they sent me another card. I've had this card for a few months and haven't really used it, but did try several times and failed. It works at Ulta.com just fine. but I tried at a few online stores, in stores and bath and body works.com, again problems, so I called customer service and this woman seemed to want to help then suddenly when I said I'd like to try this with you while we are on the phone, and I quickly did it, and it declined again, she told me to go ahead and try again and if there 's a problem call back, but I informed her I needed to resolve this now, it's been months!! She hung up. I'm done with this, paying it off and closing it. Not worth the hassle!
