Now through May 9th, Olive Garden is offering Italian food lovers a chance to win a culinary tour of Italy and an insider’s look at Olive Garden’s Culinary Institute of Tuscany. The sweepstakes will reward four grand-prize winners with an eight-day guided trip for two to explore and discover the sights, sounds and tastes of Italian culture. 500 first prize winners will be awarded a $25 Olive Garden gift card.
Today, I went and signed up for this because I figure I keep telling you guys all the time, “Why not try?” and lots of you win. Now winning a trip to Italy and getting to look into their Culinary Institute of Tuscany would honestly be like a dream come true. They also give you an opportunity for a chance daily to win a gift card. Hey, I’ll keep trying for that one, too, because Olive Garden is one of my favorite restaurants. Give me a bowl of their amazing salad and a plate of fettuccine alfredo and I am all smiles! 🙂 Just make sure that you enter the sweepstakes and gift card opportunity from them HERE.
Well, Olive Garden was sweet enough to offer one of my readers a chance to win an Olive Garden Culinary Institute of Tuscany Gift Set right here on Coupon Geek. The gift pack includes a Culinary Institute of Tuscany canvas tote, bamboo cutting board, Colavita Extra Virgin Olive Oil sample, McCormick Mediterranean Spiced Sea Salt sample and recipe card for Olive Garden’s Pollo Rocca. I received one of these myself and the tote is really beautiful!
