Congrats! You should still work on getting the Discover card in the future.  It really is a great card to have in your portfolio. You did right to decline the HSBC Discover card.

You won't have a limit, then. Green, Gold, Platinum, Black, and Zync from American Express are all charge cards, thus, they do not have a "pre-set" spending limit.
They do have an "exposure limit," however, which is essentially their limit. They won't officially tell you what it is, however. You can call in and ask if a charge of x amount would be approved, however.
And I haven't had any issues with American Express. I've been very happy with their service, thus far.
