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.

Well this year, they're raising the stakes.

On Thursday at 1:00 P.M. (CST), Olive Garden's Never Ending Pasta Passes go on sale at There will be 24,000 of them available for $100. But that's not all they'll be selling.

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, "expires upon death."

Doing the math, if you live another 60 years and use the Pasta Pass every day, that means your dinner would cost about two cents a day. Not including tip.

But if you want one of the passes, you'll have to be FAST because the Pasta Passes usually sell out in a matter of seconds, and that's without this special bonus offer for the first buyers.
