Signpost Unveils Merchant Center

It’s time to give another shout out to our tireless engineers.  Max the Mole, our mascot, has been at it again barking orders, and after a few months of hard work, we are excited to announce the release of the Signpost Merchant Center.  The Signpost Merchant Center is a self-service platform that allows local businesses to post their own pre-paid offers.

Signpost will always be a community-oriented site that allows our members to share and post deals, but we wanted to create a new way for businesses to interact directly with our community.  The new merchant center is a convenient way for local businesses to create their own targeted pre-paid offers, controlling the quantity, redemption times and more.  Best of all it is extremely affordable for merchants to post these pre-paid offers.  Over the next few months, our community will see more amazing local deals on Signpost.



Our goal is to make local businesses more involved with our community.  By signing on to the new merchant center, they’ll be able to send targeted messages to our community to tell them about different promotions going on.  You’ll be able to follow your favorite merchants by clicking on the venue name and hitting subscribe.  You’ll receive an email notification anytime something new gets posted.

As a member of our community, we hope you continue to post and vote on our site.  By voting on your favorite deals, you’ll help us find the best offers in the city, and you’ll also be informing local businesses with what types of discounts you like.  Not only will we be able to continue to personalize your experience, but you will encourage merchants to post better deals.

We’re super excited about this new release and look forward to continuing to make your Signpost experience even better.  As always, if you have any feedback, please share it with us at or leave a comment below.

Postabon is now Signpost

Over the past nine months, we’ve been working hard to help our community find the best local deals. With your help, thousands of people have discovered deals in New York neighborhoods alone.

While everyone else was at the beach this summer, we were pounding the pavement to collect your feedback. And our engineers, well let’s just say they were pounding lots of coffees and Diet Dr. Peppers.


We added new categories and browsing capabilities to make it easier to find the stuff you love. Now, you can tell us a bit about yourself and we’ll personalize your experience to only suggest deals you’re likely to care about.

With these new features, we decided it was about time to give Postabon a makeover and a name that’s easier to say. So, welcome to the new and improved Signpost, complete with Max the Mole (a dealhunting little mascot you’ll see around the new site):


At the same time, we’ve expanded to new cities – Boston, Chicago, and San Francisco – so you no longer have to be in New York to get in on the action.

We created Signpost to help people find fun and affordable things to do in their cities – from the weekend-only sample sale to the too-good-to-be-true happy hour. So if you haven’t signed up yet, give it a try. Like a signpost providing direction, Signpost members will help guide you through your city, saving you some money along the way.

We’re super excited about all of these changes and look forward to continuing to make your Signpost experience even better. As always, if you have any feedback, please share it with us at or leave a comment below.
