unlimited use metrocard

My daughter and I were in NY in June and we purchased unlimited 7 day metrocards. We only used the cards for 4 Days. We are returning in March and I was wondering if anyone knew if the cards were still valid for the other 3 days.

You can go on their website for this information but I can answer this from experience - it's 7 day from the first day of use.

No, you cannot.

An unlimited weekly card is just that - 7 consecutive days.

We gave our metro cards to the bellhop's at the hotel as we left , still with a few days left on them , whether they kept them for themselves or passed them onto other tourists ( for extra tips? ) we didn't mind.

Thank you. Just thought I would ask. We loved NYC and the convenience of the subway so we will purchase new cards and pass them on too. See you in one month! : )

Pay per ride cards can possibly be used for a return trip, but a 7 day card is good for 7 days from the first time you use them -- and those 7 days are long over.

"Finally a tourist doing something good for a fellow New Yorker!"

What is this supposed to mean?! Do you think that tourists spend their time trying to be mean and nasty?
