American Express Company (NYSE: AXP) reported second quarter 2021 earnings today.

Consolidated total revenues, net of interest expense, were $10.2 billion, up 33% from the same period a year ago, reflecting growth in Card Member spending, as well as a rise in the average discount rate due to higher levels of travel and entertainment spending in the US.
