Olive Garden is raising the stakes this year during their annual Never Ending Pasta Pass promotion and they're giving you a chance to get pasta for the rest of your life!

My wife would kill for one of these lifetime passes. She is a total Olive Garden mark, or anything Italian food for that matter.

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. This year, if you are one of the first fifty people to get a pass, you'll have the option to pay an additional $400 to elevate your pass to lifetime status!

According to their terms and conditions, the lifetime pasta pass expires upon your death. The math on this is nuts. If you throw down the $500 bucks and you live another sixty years and eat dinner at Olive Garden every night of the week, your dinner will only cost you two cents a day!

This Thursday at 2:00pm Eastern (1:00pm Central), Olive Garden's Never Ending Pasta Passes go on sale at PastaPass.com. There will be 24,000 of them available for $100.

Good Luck!
