If I am correct in assuming that there is no annual fee for the Blue Sky, then yes, you should keep it. In case you don't already know, you generally can reassign your available credit from one card to another within the Amex family by calling them. You might find this useful in the future.
Because of your choice of cards, I assume you are a moderate to heavy traveler. If this is not the case, it might be worthwhile to look around at some of the other reward card options out there. For instance, if a large portion of your spending is at restaurants, department stores, gas stations, you could probably do better with a different card that rewards more in those categories: Amex Blue Cash, Chase Freedom or Citi Forward, for instance.
Just don't dig yourself into a hole like I did when I was a student.
