The statistics presented above provide information that is
additional to the data reported by the American Express Credit
Account Master Trust (the Lending Trust) in its monthly Form 10-D
report filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The
Card Member loans that have been securitized through the Lending
Trust do not possess identical characteristics with those of the
total USCS or U.S. Small Business Card Member loan portfolios,
which include all securitized and non-securitized Card Member
loans. The reported credit performance of the Lending Trust may,
on a month-to-month basis, be better or worse as a result of,
among other things, differences in the mix, vintage and aging of
loans, the use of end-of-period principal loan balances to
calculate write-off statistics in the Lending Trust compared to
the use of average loan balances over the reporting period used
in the statistics of the USCS and U.S. Small Business Card Member
loan portfolios, as well as other mechanics of the calculation
for the Lending Trust net write-off rate, which is impacted by
any additions to the Lending Trust within a particular period.
