I believe the color shows the process of making purchases. When you reach 20-30 counts, it turns green completely.
That makes more sense. I assume Amex is trying to break the swipe wheel into quarters, and it doesn't work out as well visually for 30 (some 7, some 8) as it does for 20 (5 for each). Judging from signatures on here and on MF, I think ED is more popular than EDP, so they want to make it look good for the majority of the cardmembers. EDP people are probably more likely to be focused on rewards, and could care less about a trivial matter of aesthetics.
It doesn't bother me, though! I'm just really picky about getting fresh salad greens and don't mind making little stops!
