Olive Garden is selling LIFETIME pasta passes this year. Yes. Lifetime.
On Thursday, 50 people who buy one of Olive Garden’s annual nine-week unlimited pasta passes will have the chance to upgrade to a lifetime pass for $500.
For the past five years, Olive Garden has been running a promotion once a year where they sell the “Never Ending Pasta Pass”. You pay $100 and get unlimited pasta, salad, and breadsticks for nine weeks. Until now that’s been it and its been a runaway hit for them.
Well this year, they’re raising the stakes. On Thursday at 2:00 P.M. Eastern, Olive Garden’s Never Ending Pasta Passes go on sale at PastaPass.com. There will be 24,000 of them available for $100 each and the first 50 people who buy one will get the option to upgrade for another $400 to a LIFETIME pasta pass.
That’s right: For $500 total, you can use it to eat at Olive Garden for the rest of your life and according to the terms and conditions, it, quote, “expires upon death.” If you want one of the passes, you’ll have to be FAST, the Pasta Passes usually sell out in a matter of seconds, and that’s without this special bonus offer for the first 50 buyers.
