Called the reservations team and they can't do it either. Customer Care acknowledged a technical issue on the site but don't really seem to be doing much to fix it.

Has anyone successfully been able to use their points to make a reservation recently? Any suggestion on how I can do this before my points expire?

Thx in advance.
Firstly, make sure that the rate you are booking has the "coin" icon, which indicates the rate is eligible to be booked with points. Some prepaid promotional rates, unfortunately, do not allow points to be used.
I have been able to make two reservations this past week on rates that have permitted the redemption of points at the time of booking online - one was a prepaid rate, the other was a flexible one.
