The CSP transfers points to Southwest 1:1, so that would be my pick.

Why not both?

 

App for the CSP's 40K sign up bonus, whose points can be transferred to SW.  App for the Blue Sky Preferred's sign up bonus (had a mail for 30,000 points), but it's at least 10,000 points, which can be used at $100 credit for travel per 7,500 earned.

 

Both first year fee's are waived, and downgrade them to the no annual fee versions the following year if you don't find them worth the fee.

Re: CSP or amex blue sky preferred?

Do you have the Southwest card? The signup bonus right now is 50,000 points. If you're going to app for CSP, I would probably app for that card at the same time.
