so it looks like beauty 360 stores will have a separate rewards program, called "beautiful you" rewards. this article mentions that you can use your quarterly ecb at beauty 360 stores, but i don't think my $.50 ecb for quarterly spending will go very far. does this mean you cannot use ecb other than your quarterly rewards at beauty 360? its not very clear.
from the press release:
