I think "consistently" is an overstatement, and I'd caution others who take this on face value. I think I'm about 50-50, and my most recent TYP redemption posted the domestic flight by distance and...

There are no blackouts, but as pointed out by others, Reward Nights are capacity controlled, so if they're gone, they're gone (unless more are released later).
