     information  or otherwise  encourage  any vendor or other party to disclose
     such information,  in each case in a manner inconsistent with AOL's privacy
     policies  (other than by virtue of TS's  contact  with any such  subscriber
     after such subscriber becomes an End User).

               "(iv)  All  marketing  activities  by TS in  connection  with the
     Services shall be performed,  and any subscriber information obtained by TS

     5.   Section  V.B. of the  Agreement  is amended to add the  following  new

          "7.  Commencing  with  April  1,  1998  and so  long as AOL  shall  be
     providing  the  marketing  and  promotions  described  in Schedule X hereto
     (including from and after August 14, 1998, as AOL may elect),  TS shall pay
     to AOL the amount of $20 for each  Qualified End User who subscribes to the
     Long Distance  Telecommunications  Services,  whether through the marketing
     described on Schedule X or otherwise,  after such commencement  date, which
     amounts will be paid,  with respect to any month, on or before the last day
     of the next succeeding month."


          "8. TS shall,  upon AOL's  request,  (a)  permit  AOL to monitor  TS's
     compliance with the provisions of Section  III.A.l.g hereof and (b) provide
     to AOL reports,  detailing Gross Revenues,  Actual Services Costs,  Pre-Tax
     Profit,  the gross numbers of End Users and Qualified End Users,  the gross
     numbers of Qualified  End Users since the end of the prior  quarter and net
     End  Users  from  the end of the  prior  period.  At AOL's  request,  given
     reasonably  in advance,  TS shall provide the  foregoing  information  at a
     frequency  of no more than once  every two weeks  with  respect to End User
     information  and no more than  once  every 45 days  with  respect  to Gross

     such month.  AOL has the right to inspect  TS's records with respect to the
     use and treatment of all  subscriber  information  in  accordance  with the
     procedures set forth in Section V.13.4."

     6.   The second  sentence  of Section  VII.A.5 is amended to  substitute  a
          reference to "solely through AOL or AOL's agents" for the reference to
          "directly or indirectly through a third party on its behalf."

     7.   Section  X.B.2.  of the  Agreement  is  amended  to  provide  that the
          reference  to "each  of the  first  two  Extension  Periods"  shall be
          deleted and replaced with a reference to "the first Extension  Period"
          and to the extent  required to reflect that there will be only one (1)
          "Additional Warrant".

     C.   Amendment of Other Documents.

     1. Upon  effectiveness  of this  Amendment,  the Warrant to Purchase Common
     Stock of Tel-Save Holdings, Inc, dated as of February 22, 1997, No. W-AOL-1
     (the "Base Warrant"), and the Supplemental Warrant shall be amended to read
     in their  entireties as set forth in Appendices B-1 and B-2,  respectively,
     to this Amendment.

     D.   Miscellaneous.

     This  Amendment does not, and shall not be construed to, modify any term or
     condition of the  Agreement  (including,  without  limitation,  any payment
     obligations  under the  Agreement)  other  than  those  specific  terms and
     conditions  expressly  referenced  in  this  Amendment.  Except  as  herein
     provided,  the  Agreement  shall  remain  unchanged  and in full  force and
     effect.  In the  event of any  inconsistency  or  discrepancy  between  the
     Agreement and this  Amendment,  the terms and  conditions set forth in this
     Amendment  shall  control.  Neither party shall be bound by, and each party
     specifically  objects to, any term,  condition or other  provision  that is
     different  from or in addition to the  provisions of this Amendment and the
     Agreement  (whether or not it would  materially alter this Amendment or the
     Agreement) and which is proffered by the other party in any  correspondence
     or other document, unless the party to be bound thereby specifically agrees
     to such provision in writing in accordance with the terms of the Agreement.
     This  Amendment  may be executed in  multiple  counterparts,  each of which
     shall be deemed an original, but all of which together shall constitute one
     and the same  document.  This  Amendment  shall be governed by the internal
     laws of the State of New York,  without  giving effect to the principles of
     conflict of laws thereof.


     IN WITNESS WHEREOF, the undersigned have caused this Amendment to be signed
on their behalf as of the Amendment Effective Date.
