  Was finally targeted today.
 This will allow me to use my Amex card when shopping at Costco, making decent sized purchases and specifically wanting to use Amex for the extended warranty and ect.

   Great feature.
 Hoping they'll allow for one to set limits and set amounts per transaction and so on.

   And as seen elsewhere some people claim it's working as a DB card.

  DoC has posted about this a while ago. But seems lots were targeted over the past week.

Just what I needed to hopefully max out my Discover 5% for the quarter.

PayPal is slowly rolling out a new virtual card number system called PayPal Key. The program runs on the Mastercard network, and allows generating a card number to use anywhere and gets charged to any payment method in your PayPal wallet, including any credit card.

But the place where most folks do the bulk of their Costco shopping is not at Costco.com.

The types of big-ticket items that you'd want the Amex warranty to cover are often available online.

True, but for online purchases I can use my Amex card with this workaround.
   While for In store purchases still in need of a workaround to have my Amex benefits.

You've given me an idea. I'm curious if I can use PayPal Key (specify a new billing address) for this.
