Prepare to carb up.
Olive Garden’s famous ‘Pasta Pass’ is making a comeback this week! Passes will go on sale starting Thursday at 2 pm, but new this year will be the addition of something a little different: The Lifetime Pasta Pass…for $500.
Yes, it’s how it sounds.
So what’s the catch? Passes are limited, and will only be on sale for 30 minutes starting at 1PM CST. An online waiting room will open at 12:55pm for those who will be eagerly working out the refresh button on their browsers.
And don’t worry; like the Pasta Pass, Lifetime Pasta Pass will include unlimited soup, salad, and breadsticks as well. Olive Garden will sell 24,000 Pasta Passes this year starting at $100 each. If you get one, you’ll have a chance to get unlimited food at ‘the OG’ for nine weeks, beginning September 23rd for that pre-holiday carb rush.
The Lifetime option is limited to the first 50 people who are randomly selected by email after the purchase of a Pasta Pass. If you’re one of the select few (which is going to be a hard lotto to win with a .002% chance of being selected), you’ll have up to $48 hours to pay an additional $400 to secure it.
To get the Lifetime pass, you have to purchase a traditional pass and opt-in to buy the lifetime model potentially. The first 50 people that do will be upgraded to the lifetime option for $500. If you’re one of the lucky 50, you’ll get an email Friday letting you know you’re one of the chosen ones. From then, you’ll have 48 hours to pay the additional $400 to secure the pass.
Let the countdown begin.
