Subway Super Bowl

New Yorkers might have a ticket to this year’s Super Bowl in their pockets. Between now and November 26, transit customers who use their VISA card to purchase a MetroCard at any MetroCard Vending Machine or online are automatically entered into a sweepstakes to win either a Super Bowl trip for two to Tampa or one of six $5,000 Visa NFL gift cards. As part of the program, Jason Sehorn and Michael Strahan of the Giants, along with Wayne Chrebet and Kevin Mawae of the Jets, will be featured in game-action photos on 500,000 NYC Transit MetroCards for the Visa sweepstakes. No purchase or obligation necessary. The MetroCards will be on sale from MetroCard Vending Machines during the promotion (while supplies last). For the Visa/NYC Transit sweepstakes, the trip to Tampa includes a pair of Super Bowl tickets, airfare and hotel accommodations. Six other lucky winners will receive $5,000 Visa NFL gift cards. Also NFL fans making a purchase at any Modell’s Sporting Goods store with their Visa card during November also will be automatically entered to win an identical Super Bowl XXXV dream trip, in a separate sweepstakes.
