Guy Who Bought that Unlimited Olive Garden Pass Has Eaten at Olive Garden 95 Times in Six Weeks
Remember in September when Olive Garden sold 1,000 limited-edition passes that gave you unlimited food for just $100? There's one guy who's determined to make sure they never offer that deal again. He's Alan Martin, a pastor from Burlington, North Carolina. He bought the Olive Garden pass for $100 and over the past six weeks he's eaten at the same Olive Garden 95 times!
That's lunch and dinner every single day since the promotion started, plus a few bonus meals. Alan says he's eaten more than $1,500 worth of Olive Garden meals since he got the card.
The card gives a person unlimited pasta, salad, breadsticks, and soda for seven weeks, so Alan's estimating it would have cost around $16 each time. The pass expires on Sunday, he's going to keep using it for all his meals until then.
Alan says, "I would love to be the person that ate the most of the 1,000 people [who got the cards]. Because that means I got the most value out of the card of anyone in the U.S."
He also says that somehow he hasn't gained any weight.
