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.

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?

Yup I just tried it and didn't work.

I did almost all my Freedom Q4 spending through that, just hope this isn't a sign that Chase will be doing something about it as well...

PayPal has notified us they will no longer be allowing PayPal Key debit card payments through Plastiq when your PayPal wallet is linked to a credit card. Here are a few options so you can still make your payments successfully.
As of now, PayPal continues to allow Plastiq payments from a PayPal Key debit card with wallets linked to another debit card, bank account, or existing PayPal balance. Please make sure you adjust any scheduled payments.
Of course Plastiq also offers numerous other ways to make your payments outside of PayPal Key. You can pay with any major credit1 or debit card, or use our new cash payment feature.2 Log in here and add a new payment method.

Thanks for choosing Plastiq as your one-stop payment platform. We’re excited to continue helping you pay your way by releasing new features and improvements you’ve asked for.
Thanks for being a Plastiq customer,
Your Plastiq Team

The common thread seems to be cardholders that have used their cards to make a large volume of payments using PayPal Key,
