NEW YORK CITY (WABC) -- New Yorkers could win a free trip to Hawaii simply by purchasing a new MetroCard.

Starting Tuesday, select vending machines at eight subway stations throughout Manhattan and Brooklyn will be stocked with special Hawaii-branded MetroCards.

Anyone who gets one can register online and enter the code printed on the back of the card for a chance to win the giveaway.

The winner will get to choose one of four different trips for two to either Kauai, Oahu, Maui or Hawaii -- all of which include roundtrip airfare, accommodations, a weeklong car rental and a $1,500 gift card for spending money.

There are 250,000 specially branded MetroCards spread out among the following stations:

72nd Street-Amsterdam Avenue, Manhattan (1, 2, 3)

86th Street-Lexington Avenue, Manhattan (4, 5, 6)

59th Street-Columbus Circle, Manhattan (A, B, C, D)
