First AMEX card? That a huge SL for your first one. Congrats!
$10K isn't huge for AMEX. It's normal for a good solid clean report. Now testing the hugeness of an AMEX card would be revisiting the account in a year after a couple of 3X CLI's on it.
OP - congrats for getting a foot in the door and the $10K. The ED and BCE use different rewards structures but, kind of accumulate at the same pace. It depends on what offer was available when you selected it for the bonus. I debated between the two and went with BCE because it felt better than the ED when it came to the rewards. The ED is a 1% until you hit 20 transactions a month and then converts to 1.2%. BCE has 3/2/1% catagories instead for cash back. The MR structure is good for some but, cash back seemed simpler to deal with in the long run.
Thought you were done applying....remember.
Congrats by the way.
