Reservetravel doesn't set any of its own rates, Expedia does.

Any rate on reservetravel that says "ADVANCE PURCHASE PREPAID" will immediately be cancelled - that is, unless you can find an advance purchase prepaid on Triprewards that is higher.

Thanks. I don't feel very confident buying their prepaid rate, since there is no way our. So, reservetravel is out then.

For this case, yes. There is often non prepaid rates that the hotel sets that are cheaper than the rates offered on Triprewards. Don't exclude it as a source outright, but it's not very useful on the whole. Expedia, you'll learn, is the gem of gems for getting claims approved.
