I found the excitement a bit odd. Ring is nice for certain things (low APR, BTs, whatever) but at its core, it's just a basic credit card. Certainly not all that exciting, yet that poster was acting like they found hidden gold. They want to "keep building the relationship" with Barclays, but they're going to do that by spending on a non-rewards, no frills card? What's the gain? To each their own I guess. Then they went one step further and closed their Barclay Rewards (which they seem to have outgrown anyway). So they have just the Ring to "build a relationship" (which I keep putting in quotes because I find the relationship thing kind of overstated).
The OP actually said the card made them less stressed out with work and stuff. Um, ok. It's just a credit card.
