There are MANY apps that can help you save on hotels like Hotels.com, Booking.com etc but at the end of the day, you would be surprised to learn that the prices on the hotels’ actual site are not much different and the benefit it, you get points when you book on the hotels actual site. Go to Rakuten and find out if the hotel is offering cash back as an added bonus.
It’s better to get the money you were going to spend BACK then to get a fake discount that is the same price across all platforms INCLUDING the actual hotel booking site. Be careful when booking a hotel room from the hotel booking site. Some 3rd parties companies are unscrupulous in creating duplicate sites and pages where you THINK you are booking from, for example, “IHG Hotels” but you are actually booking from Expedia. You can resolve this issue easily by looking at the domain name of the site that you are on and what it says after “https.”
