REVERSE OF NOTE

This Note is one of the Notes of a duly authorized issue of Notes of the Issuer, designated as its Class A(2014-5) DiscoverSeries Notes (herein called the “Class A(2014-5) Notes”), all issued under an Indenture dated as of July 26, 2007, as amended by the First Amendment to Indenture, dated as of June 4, 2010 (such Indenture, as may be further amended, restated, amended and restated, supplemented, replaced or otherwise modified from time to time, is herein called the “Indenture”), as supplemented by an Amended and Restated Indenture Supplement for the DiscoverSeries Notes, dated as of June 4, 2010 (such Indenture Supplement, as may be further amended, restated, amended and restated, supplemented, replaced or otherwise modified from time to time, is herein called the “Indenture Supplement”), between the Issuer and Indenture Trustee, to which Indenture and Indenture Supplement reference is hereby made for a statement of the respective rights and obligations thereunder of the Issuer, the Indenture Trustee and the Holders of the Notes. The Class A(2014-5) Notes are subject to all terms of the Indenture, the Indenture Supplement and the Terms Document. All terms used in this Class A(2014-5) Note that are defined in the Indenture, the Indenture Supplement and the Terms Document shall have the meanings assigned to them in or pursuant to the Indenture, the Indenture Supplement and the Terms Document.

The Class B Notes, the Class C Notes and the Class D Notes of the DiscoverSeries and other tranches of Class A Notes of the DiscoverSeries will also be issued under the Indenture and the Indenture Supplement.

The Class A(2014-5) Notes are and will be equally and ratably secured by the collateral pledged as security therefor as provided in the Indenture and the Indenture Supplement.

Principal of the Class A(2014-5) Notes will be payable on the Expected Maturity Date in an amount described on the face hereof except as otherwise provided in the Indenture or the Indenture Supplement.

As described above, the entire unpaid principal amount of this Class A(2014-5) Note shall be due and payable on the Legal Maturity Date. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the entire unpaid principal amount of the Class A(2014-5) Notes shall be due and payable on the date on which an Event of Default relating to the Class A(2014-5) Notes shall have occurred and be continuing and, except in the event of an insolvency related default, the Indenture Trustee or the Majority Holders of the applicable Series, Class or Tranche of Outstanding Dollar Principal Amount of the Outstanding Notes have declared the Class A(2014-5) Notes to be immediately due and payable in the manner provided in Section 702 of the Indenture; provided, however, that such acceleration of the entire unpaid principal amount of the Notes may be rescinded by the Majority Holders of such applicable Series, Class or Tranche of Notes.

On any day occurring on or after the date on which the aggregate Nominal Liquidation Amount of any Tranche of Notes is reduced to less than 5% of its highest Outstanding Dollar Principal Amount, the Depositor or any Affiliate thereof has the right, but not the obligation, to redeem such Tranche of Notes in whole but not in part, pursuant to Section 1202 of the Indenture. The redemption price will be an amount equal to the Outstanding Dollar Principal Amount of such Tranche, plus accrued, unpaid and additional interest or principal accreted and unpaid on such Tranche to but excluding the date of redemption.

Subject to the terms and conditions of the Indenture, the Beneficiary, on behalf of the Note Issuance Trust, may from time to time issue, or direct the Owner Trustee, on behalf of the Note Issuance Trust, to issue, one or more Series, Classes or Tranches of Notes.

On each Payment Date, the Paying Agent shall distribute to each Holder of Class A(2014-5) Notes of record on the related Record Date (except for the final distribution with respect to this Class A(2014-5) Note) such Holder’s pro rata share of the amounts held by the Paying Agent that are allocated and available on such Payment Date to pay interest and principal on the Class A Notes.

Payments of interest on this Class A(2014-5) Note due and payable on each Payment Date, together with any installment of principal, if any, to the extent not in full payment of this Class A(2014-5) Note, shall be made by check mailed to the Person whose name appears as the Registered Holder of this Class A(2014-5) Note on the Note Register as of the close of business on each Record Date, except that with respect to Class A(2014-5) Notes registered on the Record Date in the name of the nominee of the clearing agency (initially, such nominee to be CEDE & CO.), payments will be made by wire transfer in immediately available funds to the account designated by such nominee. Such checks shall be mailed to the Person entitled thereto at the address of such Person as it appears on the Note Register as of the applicable Record Date without requiring that this Class A(2014-5) Note be submitted for notation of payment. Any reduction in the principal amount of this Class A(2014-5) Note (or any one or more Predecessor Notes) effected by any payments made on any Payment Date shall be binding upon all future Holders of this Class A(2014-5) Note and of any Class A(2014-5) Note issued upon the registration of transfer hereof or in exchange hereof or in lieu hereof, whether or not noted hereon. If funds are expected to be available, as provided in the Indenture, for payment in full of the then remaining unpaid principal amount of this Class A(2014-5) Note on a Payment Date, then the Indenture Trustee, in the name of and on behalf of the Issuer, will notify the Person who was the Registered Holder hereof as of the Record Date preceding such Payment Date by notice mailed within five days of such Payment Date and the amount then due and payable shall be payable only upon presentation and surrender of this Class A(2014-5) Note at the Indenture Trustee’s principal Corporate Trust Office or at the office of the Indenture Trustee’s agent appointed for such purposes located in the City of New York. On any payment of interest or principal being made, details of such payment shall be entered by the Indenture Trustee on behalf of the Issuer in Schedule A hereto.

As provided in the Indenture and subject to certain limitations set forth therein and as set forth in the first legend on the face hereof, the transfer of this Class A(2014-5) Note may be registered on the Note Register upon surrender of this Class A(2014-5) Note for registration of transfer at the office or agency designated by the Issuer pursuant to the Indenture, duly endorsed by, or accompanied by a written instrument of transfer in form satisfactory to the Indenture Trustee duly executed by, the Holder hereof or his attorney duly authorized in writing, with such signature guaranteed by a commercial bank or trust company located, or having a correspondent located, in the City of New York or the city in which the Corporate Trust Office is located, or a member firm of a national securities exchange, and such other documents as the Indenture Trustee may require, and thereupon one or more new Class A(2014-5) Notes of authorized denominations and in the same aggregate principal amount will be issued to the designated transferee or transferees. No service charge will be charged for any registration of transfer or exchange of this Class A(2014-5) Note, but the transferor may be required to pay a sum

Prior to the due presentment for registration of transfer of this Class A(2014-5) Note, the Issuer, the Indenture Trustee and any agent of the Issuer or the Indenture Trustee may treat the Person in whose name this Class A(2014-5) Note (as of the day of determination or as of such other date as may be specified in the Indenture) is registered as the owner hereof for all purposes, whether or not this Class A(2014-5) Note be overdue, and neither the Issuer, the Indenture Trustee nor any such agent shall be affected by notice to the contrary.

The Indenture permits, with certain exceptions as therein provided, the amendment thereof and the modification of the rights and obligations of the Issuer and the rights of the Holders of the Notes under the Indenture at any time by the Issuer with the consent of the Holders of Notes representing not less than 66 2/3% of the Outstanding Dollar Principal Amount of each adversely affected Series, Class or Tranche of Notes. The Indenture also contains provisions permitting the Holders of Notes representing specified percentages of the Outstanding Dollar Principal Amount of the Notes, on behalf of the Holders of all the Notes, to waive compliance by the Issuer with certain provisions of the Indenture and certain past defaults under the Indenture and their consequences. Any such consent or waiver by the Holder of this Class A(2014-5) Note shall be conclusive and binding upon such Holder and upon all future Holders of this Class A(2014-5) Note and of any Note issued upon the registration of transfer hereof or in exchange hereof or in lieu hereof whether or not notation of such consent or waiver is made upon this Class A(2014-5) Note. The Indenture also permits the Indenture Trustee to amend or waive certain terms and conditions set forth in the Indenture without the consent of Holders of the Notes issued thereunder.

The term “Issuer” as used in this Class A(2014-5) Note includes any successor to the Issuer under the Indenture.

The Issuer is permitted by the Indenture, under certain circumstances, to merge or consolidate, subject to the rights of the Indenture Trustee and the Holders of Notes under the Indenture.

The Class A(2014-5) Notes are issuable only in registered form in denominations as provided in the Indenture, subject to certain limitations therein set forth.
