Yelp is hoping to bridge the gap between business discovery and actual purchases (or "close the circle," as the company says; whichever idiom you prefer) with a new "Call to Action" feature, which you'll see indicated by a star and the words "From the Business." Companies that advertise with Yelp make deals available on Yelp. Full circle, indeed. [Yelp]
