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?
Normally Hilton points and benefits are only eligible on bookings made directly through Hilton.
