Depends what you mean by points. With an airline or hotel directly? No. Through a portal like Chase/capital one? Yes (for airlines, no for hotels).

The rule is no. There are some specific exceptions but they are rather rare.

Some airlines and hotels credit you towards status but do no reward you with redeemable points/miles.
