Your NYC MetroCard Can Win You a Trip to Hawaii

by Eben Diskin Apr 23, 2019

If you thought your NYC MetroCard was useless for anything besides a trip on a cramped subway, think again. The Hawaii Visitors and Convention Bureau (HVCB) is giving away a trip to Hawaii, and your MetroCard is your ticket to win.

From Tuesday, April 23, to Tuesday, April 30, participating MTA subway MetroCard Vending Machines will be filled with 250,000 Hawaii-themed MetroCards. After purchasing one of these special cards, visit, enter the code on the back of the card and be entered into the giveaway. The winner (who can bring a plus one) will be chosen on May 8.

The vacation includes round-trip airfare to either Kauai, Lanai, Molokai, Oahu, Maui, or the island of Hawaii; seven days and six nights at a hotel; a rental car; and a $1,500 gift card to be used as pocket money.

Eight MTA stations are participating in the promotion, including:

  • 72nd and Amsterdam — (1, 2, 3)
  • 86th and Lexington — (4, 5, 6)
  • 59th and Columbus — (A, B, C, D)
  • 23rd and 8th — (C, E)
  • 14th and Union Square — (L, N, Q, R, W, 4, 5, 6)
  • Broadway & Lafayette at Houston — (B, D, F, M)
  • Fulton Street — (A, C, J, Z, 2, 3, 4, 5)
  • Atlantic Av-Barclays Ctr — (B, Q, 2, 3, 4, 5)
