Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Alliance Data, which provides private-label credit card services to retailers, said the acquired portfolio carried only a modest level of delinquencies.

The company does not expect the deal to add to its earnings in 2012.

Alliance Data will also manage the retailer's private-label credit card program.
