I've seen this deal for ~$75 on no less than 4 deal of the day websites in the past year so it hasn't exactly been hard to come by.  Oh well, b'hatzlacha!

Why? It's $150 value.  http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:dEk5D9Fyt5cJ:jewpon.com/new-york/deal/last-call!-delicious-deal!-perfect-for-date-night!-only-%2475-for-a-3-course-prix-fixe-dinner-for-2-(b+jewpon+talia's&cd=1&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=us&client=safari

And I value my smelly socks at $50. But I'll sell them for$10. Any takers?

Not saying $75 is a bad deal. Just saying you should adjust your expectations of making money off the deal

So you should have listed in the title that you are selling it for $100 or whatever you want... You wrote "$75 for ...."

Um....
All feelings on the matter aside, you lied.
The title says $75, and then you say you want more.

I've used this coupon twice. In my humble opinion the restaurant is mediocre at best, the menu for this deal is limited and definitely not worth more then $75. It is also deep into the West Side so it is a shlep if you are coming from Brooklyn. There is a reason why they constantly have this offer.

Kal: You've got to be kidding if you think you can come here and make a profit on this. You'd be lucky if you get someone to take it at at a loss!!!

I'd pay $45 for it.  Seriously.  PM me if interested.

Beware that you end up spending tax on $75 (b/w $6-$7) and tip ($27 @ the tastefully suggested 18%) on the "full value" ($150), so you already have to pay another $34.
Add drinks (wine included, but not soda etc.) so you'll probably end up spending about another $40.

Also worthy to note, that being the UWS, I was able to find street parking for free, which I usually budget about $15 for.

I purchased one of these for $75. I don't regret buying it, but I also wouldn't repeat the experience there for $75.

If there was another such offer elsewhere I might consider it.
