Applying Free Weekend Cert + Resort Credit while stacking with Rakuten?

I have the Aspire card and am looking to book the Hilton Santa Barbara Beachfront Resort in August for a week. This resort is part of Hilton's Resorts that qualify for the $250 Resort credit on the Aspire.

I also have a free weekend night certificate available from my Aspire and I'd like to apply both the $250 and the free night to my 7-day stay. Otherwise, I'll be paying cash for the stay.

I would prefer to book online so I can stack the Rakuten extra %. I chatted with Hilton through the website and they said in order to use the $250 and the free night cert, I had to call the resort directly and book with them.

Is there any other way around this so I can book online and stack that extra Rakuten MR point?
