     (a)      On each Purchase Date, the Seller shall sell to the Buyer without recourse, and the Buyer shall purchase from the Seller, all right, title and interest of the Seller in, to and under all Receivables that (i) were created during the immediately preceding Monthly Period and were not previously sold to the Buyer on the preceding Purchase Date and (ii) all Receivables created and to be created during the Monthly Stub Period (the “Monthly Stub Period Receivables”) for the calendar month in which such Purchase Date occurs (such Receivables being sold hereinafter called “New Receivables”).

On the Purchase Date, to the extent it is not ascertainable, the parties shall estimate in a reasonable manner agreed to by the parties the amount of Monthly Stub Period Receivables being sold on such Purchase Date, as well as an estimate of the amount of collections and recoveries with respect to Sold Receivables and New Receivables during the Monthly Stub Period, to arrive at an estimated payment amount with respect to the Monthly Stub Period Receivables being sold on such Purchase Date.

     (d)      The parties intend that each transfer of Receivables by the Seller to the Buyer pursuant to this Agreement be an absolute sale and not a secured borrowing, for all purposes, including accounting.

Section 3.      Billing and Collection of Receivables

     (a)      The Seller has retained the Servicer to perform the accounting, clerical and other services necessary to manage, bill and collect payments for all Receivables pursuant to the most recently approved Service Agreement between the Servicer and the Seller relating to charge card receivables (the “Servicing Agreement”). The Buyer agrees that it shall be responsible for payment of all fees charged by the Servicer under the Servicing Agreement and related to the servicing of the Sold Receivables. The Buyer shall pay such fees directly to the Servicer. By its signature below, the Servicer agrees that the Seller shall not be responsible for payment of such fees, releases the Seller from any liability for such fees and agrees that Servicer shall have recourse only to the Buyer for payment of all such fees. The Buyer covenants to Servicer that it shall promptly pay all such fees. The Buyer authorizes the Servicer to bill and collect Sold Receivables in the Seller’s or TRS’ name, as applicable, but for the Buyer’s account and benefit. The Seller agrees it shall direct the Servicer to follow substantially the same billing and collection policies being followed at the time of execution of this Agreement (including without limitation the collection from Service Establishments of any portion of Card accounts and Receivables for which such Service Establishments are liable, either because they have permitted charges in excess of authorized limits or otherwise) and shall not institute any significant changes in such billing and collection policies without the prior consent of the Buyer. The Buyer agrees that the Seller may have use of the collections on Sold Receivables between Purchase Dates, provided that the Seller may in its discretion require that collections be remitted directly to it by giving notice to the Servicer. The Seller acknowledges that it holds any such collections that it may receive in trust for the Buyer.

     (b)      On each Purchase Date, the Seller shall advise the Buyer of the amount of Sold Receivables which have become Uncollectible Receivables during the related Monthly Period. The Seller shall not be obliged to direct the Servicer to make any effort to collect Uncollectible

5


Receivables other than in accordance with its customary policies and procedures unless requested by the Buyer to do so, in which case the Buyer shall solely be responsible for all costs and expenses of the Servicer in making additional efforts to collect Uncollectible Receivables.

      (c)      All amounts collected by Seller on Sold Receivables and New Receivables pursuant to the foregoing provisions of this Section 3 are hereinafter called “Collections on Sold Receivables.” The aggregate amount of Collections on Sold Receivables during a Monthly Period shall be settled on the related Purchase Date in accordance with Section 4(b) of this Agreement except that after any termination pursuant to Section 8 all Collections on Sold Receivables shall be settled in accordance with Section 8.

Section 4.      Procedure for Purchase and Payment

     (a)      In connection with each sale and purchase of Receivables on each Purchase Date, the Seller shall deliver to the Buyer a duly executed assignment, substantially in the form set forth in Exhibit A (each, an “Assignment”) to the Buyer of all of the Seller’s right, title and interest in and to the Receivables then being sold to the Buyer.

     (b)      On each Purchase Date, the Seller shall also submit to the Buyer a statement in writing substantially in the form of and containing the information specified in Exhibit A hereto.

     (c)      The amount payable by Seller to Buyer or by Buyer to Seller, as calculated on any given payment date (the “Payment Amount”), shall be calculated as set forth in Exhibit A. The Seller agrees to pay the Buyer the Payment Amount if the Payment Amount is a negative number, and the Buyer agrees to pay the Seller if the Payment Amount is a positive number. If the Payment Amount equals zero, then no payment will be due from or to one party by the other party. The Buyer shall pay to the Seller or the Seller shall pay to the Buyer, as the case may be, such net amount due on the Purchase Date, which payment shall be in the form of cash.

     (d)      As a remedy for any breaches of its representation and warranty contained in Section 9(b)(viii), on each Purchase Date the Seller shall credit to the Buyer an amount equal to the portion of Sold Receivables as to which, during the related Monthly Period, the Servicer has adjusted downward the amount payable because of Fraud or has made a Relationship Adjustment, in each case after application of an applicable discount rate. This shall be effectuated by reducing the aggregate face amount of New Receivables being sold on each Purchase Date by the aggregate face amount of adjustments downward as a result of Fraud and Relationship Adjustments during the related Monthly Period.

Section 5.      Pledge of New Receivables and Filing of Financing Statements

     (a)      The parties hereto agree that the purchase by Buyer of New Receivables shall constitute an absolute sale and assignment of Receivables to Buyer and not a loan to Seller. In the event that Article 9 of the UCC applies or may apply to the transactions contemplated hereby, and in addition to otherwise secure payment of and performance by Seller of any and all of its indebtedness, liabilities and obligations to Buyer, now existing or hereafter arising whatsoever, in each case solely pursuant to this Agreement, including, without limitation, all

6


obligations of Seller under this Agreement to perform acts or refrain from taking any action, Seller hereby grants to Buyer, a first priority continuing security interest in and to all of Seller's right, title and interest in, to and under the Sold Receivables, and all proceeds thereof. Buyer shall have all of the rights and remedies of a secured party under the UCC as in effect in the State of Utah. This Agreement shall constitute a security agreement under applicable law.

     (b)      In addition, to secure payment of and performance by Buyer of any and all of its indebtedness, liabilities and obligations to Seller, now existing or hereafter arising whatsoever, in each case solely pursuant to this Agreement, including, without limitation, all obligations of Buyer under this Agreement with respect to payments for purchased New Receivables, Buyer hereby grants to Seller, a first priority continuing security interest in and to all of Buyer’s right, title and interest in, to and under all payment received in respect of Sold Receivables, and all proceeds thereof. Seller shall have all of the rights and remedies of a secured party under the UCC as in effect in the State of Utah. This Agreement shall constitute a security agreement under applicable law.

     (c)      In connection with the above grants of security interest, each party in its capacity as debtor agrees, if requested by the other party, to file, at its own expense, one or more financing statements (and amendments with respect to such financing statements when applicable) meeting the requirements of applicable state law in such manner and in such jurisdictions as are necessary to perfect the above grants of security interest and to deliver a file-stamped copy of such financing statements or amendments or other evidence of such filing to the other party.

Section 6.      Maintenance of Quality of Receivables

     The Seller shall not materially reduce the credit standards used in determining whether a Card is to be issued to an applicant therefor or materially liberalize its policy as to the cancellation of a Card for credit reasons without providing prior written notice of such action to the Buyer.

Section 7.      The Seller Required to Furnish Certain Information

     The Buyer shall have the right from time to time at reasonable intervals to require the Seller to supply such information as the Buyer may reasonably request respecting the Seller’s credit standards, accounting, data processing, collection practices and experience in Receivables collection and turnover. Any such information shall be deemed to have been requested reasonably only if it is necessary or appropriate for a determination of the adequacy of the Buyer’s reserve for Receivables losses, the rate of collection of Receivables, the risk of uncollectibility thereof, or whether amounts collected on Sold Receivables are being properly accounted for by Seller, or to ascertain the appropriateness of the Settlement Statements or Termination Settlement Statements. The Seller shall also furnish such information as the Buyer may reasonably request respecting the creditworthiness and credit ratings of the Seller.

7


Section 8.      Termination

     This Agreement shall remain in effect until (i) sales and purchases hereunder are terminated by either party hereto by the giving of written notice to the other party specifying the effective date of such termination, which unless otherwise agreed in writing shall be effective following the settlement of a Purchase Date, or (ii) an Insolvency Event shall have occurred with respect to either party, in which event this Agreement shall terminate automatically upon the occurrence of such Insolvency Event. No such termination shall affect the rights of the parties hereto with respect to Sold Receivables. In the event of any such termination of this Agreement the parties shall settle activity with respect to Sold Receivables in accordance with the methodology set forth in the Termination Settlement Statement set forth in Exhibit B until such time as Buyer’s owned balance of Receivables (excluding all Uncollectible Receivables) is brought down to zero.
