I used 2.5 months of PRG history to get a BCE which I plan to keep a long time. As you have something with Amex, use the Delta frequently and pay in full every week. If you want the PRG, reapply for it in a few months and get your FICO higher if possible. If you want a credit card like one in the EveryDay or Blue Cash series, I'd keep the Delta open a few months more than that and then look into doing a product change to BCE or apply for the ED.
Be responsible with what you have and you'll build the history to get what you want.
I don't think Amex allows PCs from cobranded cards to the BCE but nonetheless that's exactly what OP should do.
