So $41 off per reservation of $90ish. Not bad. The app is making me confirm a phone number but only gives me the option of a +91 code

Don't worry about the phone number. Just give a dummy number.

Obviously, u just quoted your hotel pick. Currency translation of an "ideal" price pick should give exact 50% off, correct? I'm assuming the app allows purchasing a US hotel in USD, rather than Indian currency?

So far all transactions have been in INR, not hotel currency.

These are not valid on "pay at hotel" bookings, prepayment only.

I have used MakeMytrip several times lately - for hotels in India and Thailand. I have never experienced any issues - MakeMytrip is a huge Indian OTA (not a scam as some may fear). The app works like a charm.

I have always been charged in INR rather than the hotel currency (THB) or USD. It is all prepaid, but some/most rates are flexible. Cancel and refund work without issues and the amount refunded hit my account within days.

The discount does not apply to tax, VAT etc nor the booking fees of MakeMytrip (which are on the high side for hotels outside India IMO) - so it is not really 50% off, but still a very nice offer/good discount - that is why I have used them before. HOWEVER, not all rates are bookable in the app. It appears to me that for some properties only BAR or flexible rates are offered - not prepaid/advance purchase rates nor rates with breakfast, which can be quite annoying when you are looking for the discount to be applied to lowest available rates found on e.g. the webpage of hotel or other OTAs.

Only issue is that confirmation page has always wrong days. This may have something to do with time zones, confirmation e-mail (and voucher) show correct.

I tried with a UK credit card, But the reservation will not go through. Any ideas ?
I have phoned the bank, no problem with the card.

up to maximum of Rs.2,750 per booking which is about $40.81 per booking, so I don't think it's as good as 50% off looks, unless you are booking a night or two at a total of less than $90

I don't understand why everyone says $90+

Isn't minimum purchase required 5000 = $73? And max. discount obtained on $82 room? What are constraints on multiple usage (via different accounts)?

I think your math is correct. USD 90+ may come from rate including service tax, VAT, booking fee etc.

There are no constraints on multiple bookings and no need to use different accounts. I have booked consequtive single nights several times in the past to maximise the discount; no issues encountered.

For most Asian properties their taxes are over 30%, so if you find anything around 5400 IR, with the taxes added and code deduction you save around 25 % only, and if you use searching engines you can find the same hotel cheaper on other TA, with much lower taxes. Not sure about European and NA properties though.

I used this for a cheap southern USA hotel. Thanks. If you have the need for an inexpensive room somewhere in the world, it's certainly worth pricing it. The selection is pretty crummy but it's certainly worth a look. You can order the list by tripadvisor reviews, which I found particularly helpful while looking for cheaper hotels. The booking process itself was simple.
