That is true, there are banks I signed up for bonuses where the bonus posted right after the first *"DD" posted. Now you know and if you're interested to find out what those banks are, check doctorofcredit website : )

*this was from ACH transfer from a CU, not from employer's account.

Several reports on another site that, as of 2/26, VENMO no longer codes 3x on everyone's favorite business card. (sniffle, sniffle)

In general, I find that there are certain sites (such as Paypal) that are too valuable for me to mess with by using MS (to any worthwhile extent, at least). Venmo is one of them, BB and Serve were (for me) another. While I am not a heavy user of Venmo, I find that the convenience of using it far outstrip the minimal MS benefits it provides (when taking in the cost of losing it by being banned).

So YMMV but being able to load 4 $500 GCs a year (if you find ones that actually work) isn't worth the risk of losing the service to me.
Out of curiosity, how does Venmo ban you? Can't you just make a new account? It's not like they have your SSN or anything...

A good question.
So you may want to read this article which gives multiple examples of how a Venmo account can be restricted.
And interestingly, having multiple accounts is one of the reasons you can be restricted or banned.
