  1. Good for solo travelers, but what about family for three or four? In those cases the discount drops to 6 – 10 %.

  2. I have used this for quite some time and the cash back happens earlier than expected. If i’m not mistaken, other card companies offer similar program during rest of the week

  3. I used the promotion on MMT recently for an Indigo ticket. I did the booking around November 20, travelled on December 25, and the cash back of Rs. 1200 was credited to the card on December 31. It worked quite smoothly.

  4. AJ,

    This scheme has been on for quite some time with a few brief breaks in between. Earlier MMT was also a 10X partner for Citi, is it still true? Any ideas?
