Tricks for Booking with

I and my wife were making a decision on what hotel to book for our trip in Bangkok during the Chinese New Year 2018. We plan to stay there for 4 nights. 

I was on my laptop seeing price of D Varee Hotel Xpress Makkasan at $41 per night, while my wife was on Agoda app of her iPhone and the price shown was $29. So, this is lesson number 1- Price on Agoda app could be cheaper. 

Later, my wife tried checking the $29 per night, we tried to change the date back and forth, whether we should book 4 night in one booking or separate booking. We found that the first two nights could be grouped together and the price would be $29 per night, while the other two nights could be grouped together and the price would be $41. Thus, we could save some money. 

While if I happen to view from my laptop, it is $41 per night, no matter what day I want to choose among the 4 nights in total. Lesson learned - try grouping the dates you might pay less because if you want to do only one booking, they would flatten the rate by using the highest rate $41. 

Separate bookings, make up to $878.88
So, after making separate bookings, the total that I spent was $878.88 for 4 night and 6 rooms. 
Well, I just wanted you to understand the concept. For the math, please excuse me. You probably try to calculate and find an error then consider my information misleading. At least, the trick worked for me.
