AMERICAN EXPRESS OPEN(SM) EXPANDS BUSINESS SAVINGS PROGRAM

Automatic 5% discount on Carey International Ground Transportation and Epson America Office Equipment

American Express OPEN today announced the expansion of its OPEN Savings® program with the launch of partners Carey International and Epson America. OPEN Savings(1) provides small business owners with automatic savings virtually every time they use an American Express Business Card to make purchases at any OPEN Savings partner.

Business Cardmembers can now receive an automatic 5% discount on:

* Carey International, a premier provider of worldwide chauffeured services and luxury ground transportation; and

* Epson America, including WorkForce(TM) printers, Epson projectors, scanners and other innovative products.

OPEN Savings has delivered more than $300 million in savings to American Express Business Cardmembers since 2004. OPEN Savings eliminates the need for offer codes, coupons or program enrollment and provides automatic savings from an array of well-known brands. Savings can also be combined with other marketplace offers or volume discount pricing that businesses may already be receiving from program partners.

“With the addition of these new partners, businesses can now effortlessly reduce their ground transportation and some office equipment expenses,” said Mary Ann Fitzmaurice Reilly, senior vice president, American Express OPEN. “Time-pressed business owners who are weary of coupons or special offer codes now have a better and simpler way to save, with OPEN Savings’ automatic and combinable discounts. These new OPEN Savings partners can help increase the millions of dollars in savings that we’re already delivering to our business Cardmembers.”
