How to book US Bank Club Carlson e-cert free nights (it may be harder than you think)

Club Carlson e-cert

The Club Carlson Premier Rewards Visa and its business card twin used to be among my favorite cards.  In fact, I have one of each, and my wife has the personal card.  Until May of this year, the cards offered a wonderfully generous benefit called Bonus Award Nights: book two or more nights with points and get the last night free.  This meant that two night stays cost the same as one night stays (since…
