Apple and Ring approvals from Barclays

Hey guys, I've been rebuilding and only have 1 card left to pay down, woo! I decided to app for the Ring card since it has a low APR and I wanted to lower my util. I was denied for the Ring online so I apped for the apple financing card and was approved for  $2k. Two days later (today) I called the backdoor number to recon the Ring app and they approved me for $2.5k. I then asked about transfering the limit from the apple card to the ring and the person that did the recon for me told me that wasn't an option... so I called back in to the regular number and had the full limit transfered and the apple card closed in less than 3 minutes. $4.5k is my second highest limit, but ring has a lower apr by 5%. My TU is a 676 according to walmart fico, aaoa 2.6 years, 1 year old collection 90+day, 120+day charge off in 2010, util around 40%. 7 inq.

"If there's a lack of money in your life, understand that feeling worried, envious, jealous, disappointed, discouraged, doubtful or fearful about money can never bring more money to you, because those feelings come from a lack of gratitude for the money you have."

"Reactions are powerful creators because they contain every element needed to manifest—they're a combination of thought, belief, and feeling in action. Positive reactions create more positive things, and negative reactions create more negative things. If you can respond to negative situations calmly and lightly, instead of with emotional turbulence, what happens next in your life will be so much better."
