Olive Garden is selling an all-inclusive trip to Italy tomorrow for only $200! That is all it will cost but there is one big reason that you won’t buy it!

Tomorrow, Olive Garden is selling 22,000 passes for their incredibly popular Never Ending Pasta Bowl Pass. For $100, you can eat all the pasta, bread, and salad you want. I know, this is not something most people will want to do (cue the jokes about all the other money you will have to spend for what hundreds of pounds of pasta will do to you). But, it can still be a good deal for many, depending on their dining habits.

However, Olive Garden is also offering something else this year – a Never Ending Pasta Bowl Pass with a trip to Italy for $200. Yep, that’s right. For only an extra $100, you can buy a trip to Italy for 8 days/7 nights with all flights, hotels, transportation, and daily activities for 2 people. Pretty incredible, right?

… But You Won’t Buy It

What’s the catch? There is no catch with the deal except they are only selling 50 of these passes. The thousands of passes for the Never Ending Pasta bowl sell out before you can blink so just imagine how fast those 50 passes will sell for!

If you have an incredible internet connection, fast fingers, and a whole lot of luck, you can grab one of those trips to Italy tomorrow for only $200. But, I think it is safe to say that none of us will be buying that pass!

For the rest of us, give the Never Ending Pasta Bowl Pass a try if that is your thing. Both will be up for sale at 2PM ET on September 14th (tomorrow) and will both likely be sold out by 2:00:01 PM.

I love this little bit from Olive Garden: “Not everyone who wants a Pass/Passport will get one.” So true…

  • I wish it was a little more specific as to -where- in Italy you were going! I mean, I’m really not complaining for that price, don’t get me wrong! 😀

  • Or sounds like you have to be willing to travel alone if you can only buy one passport. I guess you hope your travelling companion is also lucky??

  • The Italy pass is for 2. Passholder and a guest.
