Does anyone know if you can earn Hilton Honors base points and qualify stays from the pre-paid advanced purchase rates on the Hilton Honors website? I've always been booking the flexible rates.

The T&C below are not very clear:

Eligible Rate stays are stays at all rates except wholesale/tour operator packages, contracted airline crew rates, complimentary or barter rooms, stays on NET Group, Series Group or IT Group rates, contracted Entertainment or Encore rates and stays using airline percent-off award certificates. Stays that are booked via third party websites other than the websites of Hilton HHonors airline partners are not Eligible Stays irrespective of rate paid, for the purpose of earning points, miles or stay credit toward VIP tier status. Stays booked via "opaque" channels where the brand is unknown at the time of purchase are not Eligible Stays for the purpose of earning points, miles or stay credit toward VIP tier status, or the receipt of VIP tier benefits such as upgraded accommodations / amenities or access to health clubs. At Scandic hotels, only qualifying nights count toward Silver VIP status; only qualifying nights and HHonors Base point earnings count toward Gold and Diamond VIP status.

Yes, all bookings made via hilton.com family web sites are eligible. (hhonors.com, hamptoninn.com, hiltonfamily.com, hilton.com etc ..)

Also, any booking made by calling Hilton reservations.

Yep, they sure do. The issue with points credits comeswhen you use a third party websites.
