Olive Garden offering very limited number of ‘Lifetime Pasta Passes'

The Lifetime Pasta Pass includes a lifetime of unlimited servings of your favorite pastas, homemade sauces and toppings, accompanied by unlimited soup or salad and breadsticks.

But the big change is the addition of 50 lifetime passes, available only to those who first win one of the lower-priced tickets. The pasta pass can not be shared with another person.

Olive Garden (DRI) lovers rejoice!

Let's dive right into the numbers: These truly never-ending, gold-colored passes will cost just $500 each - an incredible deal, really.

The company will sell the passes starting at 2 p.m. August 15. This means if a victor were to purchase the $500 Lifetime Pasta Pass and consume a bowl of pasta per day for 60 years, each bowl would each cost less than three cents. In 2018, Olive Garden provided the twist of selling a second pass, good for a full year, for $300. Now if you used the Lifetime Pasta Pass once a day for the next 60 years, each visit would cost less than three cents and the $500 you shelled out for the card would be paid off by your 45th bowl.

Guests can buy a Never Ending Pasta Pass for $100, which includes nine weeks of access to unlimited pasta, homemade sauces, pasta toppings, soup or salad and breadsticks for the duration of the promotion, from September 24 through November 24.

Beginning Aug. 15 at 2 p.m.

The family-style eatery is billing the lifetime pass as an upgrade to its regular unlimited pass. In the past, the passes have sold out within minutes of going on sale.

Lifetime Pasta Pass holders must be 18 years old or older to purchase the lifetime pass, which never expires.

Instructions for the sale can also be found on Olive Garden's website.
