GE Capital cards are great for generous CLIs, from what I have read. Not sure about their approval standards. Go here GE Capital Partners & Contact Numbers | Retail Partners
and check out the retailers that they brand with. There are over a couple of dozen so there should be something that appeals to you.
One caveat about the Amex. Be careful closing the card you have to apply for another, assuming the Optima is important to you. I remember reading about one person who closed an Amex card to open a different one and they declined him for the new card. When he asked for the old one back, they declined him for that, too!
