Item 7.01Regulation FD Disclosure

American Express Company (the “Company”) is hereby furnishing below delinquency and write-off statistics for its U.S. Consumer and U.S. Small Business Card Member lending portfolios for the months ended January 31, 2024 and December 31 and November 30, 2023.

(a)Net write-off rate based on principal only (i.e., excluding interest and/or fees).
(b)Due to the timing of the Thanksgiving holiday in November 2023, information related to certain U.S. Consumer Card Member debt settlement agreements was received at a later time in the month. Operationally, such settlements resulted in writing off the associated loans in December 2023 in the ordinary course.

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 U.S. Consumer or U.S. Small Business Card Member loan portfolios, which include 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 U.S. Consumer 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.
