You can win a trip to Hawaii right now by buying a MetroCard

Written by

As much as we all love our daily commutes, what if your MetroCard could get you to Hawaii and not just Union Square?

That’s right! One subway rider (and a friend) could soon be on a warm beach and sipping tropical cocktails from hallowed pieces of fruit.

Starting today, eight MTA stations will be stocked with a total of 250,000 Hawaii-branded MetroCards. Enter the code on the back of the card before April 30, and you (plus the aforementioned friend) will be entered to win a round trip flight to the island of your choice, a seven-day hotel stay, rental car and $1,500 gift card.

If you can picture yourself chilling in a hammock surrounded by white sand and palm trees, make sure to grab a limited-edition MetroCard at the following subway stations:

  • 72nd and Amsterdam
  • 86th and Lexington
  • 59th and Columbus
  • 23rd and 8th
  • 14th St. Union Square
  • Broadway Lafayette
  • Fulton Street
  • Atlantic Av-Barclays Ctr

The winning New Yorker will be drawn on May 8, but if that isn’t you, Hawaii Tourism will still be running contests every month through October, including a collaboration with Governors Ball next month, Barry’s Bootcamp in June and Best Made in July.

Good luck!
