I’ve read that Tesco banned Monzo cards.
Where did you read this?
I’ve used it recently
Probably read this, it was a very temporary issue.
Not very welcoming to come back after seven months out yourself to have a pop at a newcomer
While the news was blown out of all proportion, it is a valid (and addressable) concern for someone newer to Monzo
6 month ban must have just expired.
There is a lot more detail in this thread: Tesco not accepting Monzo
If you come across any merchant not accepting Monzo, your first port of call should be firstname.lastname@example.org
I shop at Tesco frequently and never once had a problem.
