For many us in colder weather climates, the coming winter will mean the end to comfortable outdoor dining. That will mean a tough time dining outside until the Spring.

But American Express is doing its part, helping provide outdoor “yurts” – heated private tents – for cardmembers.

If you are in a cash crunch, you should avoid travel rewards credit cards until you are caught up. Here are our favorite credit cards for Intro 0% APR offers and for balance transfer offers

You must have an Amex in your Resy account to be able to book a Yurt and, importantly, Amex Platinum and Amex Business PlatinumĀ cardmembers get a 48 hour advance booking window. I just took a look and Yurt spots are already scarce so grab your Platinum card and take a look at the availability ASAP. The booking window started at 11am Eastern time today, Monday September 16th.

The restaurants participating in the Yurt promotion are:

  • Arlo Grey in Austin, TX
  • Bywater American Bistro in New Orleans, LA
  • Canlis in Seattle, WA
  • The Charter Oak in Napa Valley, CA
  • Crown Shy in Brooklyn, NY
  • Fairfax in NY, NY
  • Fiola in Washington, DC
  • Frasca Food and Wine in Boulder, CO
  • The Gret in Savannah, GA
  • Kann in Portland, OR
  • Lilia in Brooklyn, NY
  • Swift & Sons in Chicago, IL
  • Zahav in Philadelphia, PA

Let me know if you book a Yurt!

yottaWhat is Yotta Savings?: The Yotta Savigs account is a really fun way to earn interest at a higher rate than Marcus while having some fun each night when the Yotta prize ball drops. Currently, the statistical odds imply a net savings rate of between around 1% and 3% - at a time when banks like Marcus are offering a paltry 0.5%. Plus, it's fun! | Read my review of Yotta.

I got "in the game" in 2003 and since then I've collected literally millions and millions of frequent flyer miles and hotel points. I've flown around the world in first class seats that would cost $29,000 using frequent flyer miles and a few bucks in tax. And I've stayed in some of the finest hotels - all for free! A few years ago I realized many of my friends actually thought I was paying for these!! So I started sharing my tips. It's long been a passion, but when I hosted a session on Miles and Points at this year's South by Southwest festival, my love of the game intensified and this blog was born.
