Here's how it works:
There will be 24,000 passes going on sale at 2 p.m. ET. Olive Garden recommends joining its "waiting room" at 1:55 p.m. — 5 minutes before the sale begins. Have your payment method ready, because the process will be fast.
When the “buy now” icon illuminates, click it quickly. If you’re fast enough, you’ll go from the waiting room to the cart page. Once there, you’ll have 8 minutes to complete your purchase.
If you’re interested in the Lifetime Pasta Pass, click the box for the chance to upgrade. The first 50 to opt in the lifetime pass and complete their purchase will receive an email on Friday, August 16.
A “sold out” message will appear when there are no more passes.
