There is a message displayed on their website, but of course you wouldn't see the message having pushed a WMBP.
I did inquire on day 9 after a payment didn't release CL. I discussed with people who reported no hold on pushed payments. I think my account was under review prior to calling, but who knows.

Would I do this with an issuer I was concerned about keeping long term? Of course not. If you value your relationship with an issuer, this hobby is a marathon. If you don't, it's a sprint. Might as well stress test early on, before loss of cash back match becomes too big of a risk. Staying within the CL for that card ($5k) on a monthly basis wasn't worth logging into another site to check that payments arrived, etc.
