Any data points on this?

I used my PPK with freedom for $1500 at plastiq, so far received the bonus.
Any reason to expect a shutdown?
It is on their radar. What steps they take is anyone's guess.

If they don't like it, why not just not give bonus points for PPK purchase, it shows up diff on the statment, seems pretty easy to diffrentiate?

Any DPs for using Amex consumer via PPK and Plastiq. Any FR/shutdown concern?

If I use my key somewhere and don't want them to be able to charge my card later, is it enough to change the security code, or do I need to change the "cc" number as well?
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

You mean like if it was compromised? Some places you don't need the security code.

TY
So it's better to cancel the whole key I guess...

Next question: can a website know if a CC# is a paypal key and not allow you to use it?

PP knows and will block it. They have already done this.

It's under MasterCard when I order, it usually has a PayPal pop up, so I'm assuming yes.

Of course PayPal knows. Did I misunderstand you or did you misunderstood the question?

I was answering the question that should have been asked.  ;)
Also be aware if might get hit with a cash advance fee.
