By The Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) ' American Express says its first quarter profit rose 7 percent and beat Wall Street expectations as its customers spent more and fewer defaulted on their accounts.

The credit card issuer earned $1.25 billion, or $1.07 per share, in the first three months of the year. Revenue jumped 8 percent to $7.61 billion.

Wall Street was expecting a profit of $1.01 per share and revenue of $7.47 billion.

CEO Kenneth Chenault says customer spending rose 12 percent over the same quarter a year ago. Past-due accounts and write-offs are at historic lows.
