On the Blue Sky page, there is a (now dead) link for the BSP. If the BSP has been discontinued, I don't see it as any great loss.

The Blue Sky Preferred card IS on their website if you browse incognito. If you are logged in, then you won't be able to see it even if you are logged out for timeout.

Open these links in incognito window and they are available to apply for. They will give error message if you are logged in.

Any idea why Amex is only showing the card to new customers / incognito browsers? I can't see what it does for Amex.

I can understand Chase playing a bit with the CSP's advertised annual fee, since it gives them some idea of what people are willing to pay for the card. But why would Amex conceal any card from established customers?

The Blue Sky is like the red-headed step child in comparison to the Barclay Arrival +. There seems to be very little love for this card in any of the forums.

With the 1.33 point redemption value it is a not too shabby.

I was seriously considering the Blue Sky (non-preferred) back when I was applying for a card (ended up going with the ED). The Arrival+ has a big flashy introductory bonus so I can see why it gets a lot of attention, but the Blue Sky really isn't too bad for a non-AF card. Now that more and more cards seem to be offering higher than a straight 1.33% return in cash, though, it is looking less attractive. The bonus categories on the preferred version just aren't that impressive, to me at least.

The regular Blue Sky isn't being hidden, for whatever reasons.
