Olive Garden, everyone’s favorite national Italian restaurant chain that starts with “O” and ends with “live Garden,” has launched a sweepstakes for foursquare users. Twenty winners will pick up dinner and movie for two.
To enter, just check in at any Olive Garden Monday-Thursday, include the hashtag #2for25 and push your check-in to Twitter. If you forget the hashtag, they’ve added a special to their venues on foursquare that explains the whole thing. The contest runs through August 1. Read the official rules for all the details.
Winners will get a $25 Olive Garden gift card — which may sound cheap by Olive Garden standards, but it’s just enough to purchase one of their new two for $25 meal deals. They’ll also get a Fandango voucher good for two movie tickets.
Despite the convoluted entry method, this is a pretty fun way to promote some new, less expensive dining options.
