GTA V Making Money Hints & Tips

Armored Car Robberies

When you see a blue dot on the map it means there is an armored car.

If it’s parked and there is someone with a briefcase walking towards it, shoot that person and you’ll get $5,000 easy.

Otherwise steal the armored car and break open the back doors (an easy way of doing this is to just drive it into the water). You can also simply plant sticky bombs to the back of the car to blow it open.

ATM Robberies

If you hang around ATMs and wait for people to withdraw cash before robbing them, they are much more likely to yield a decent chunk of change for your trouble.

Easy $100,000 Mission

Most people report getting this mission when they are playing as Franklin, but there is also reports of Michael receiving it too.

Anyway when you’re playing (particularly as Franklin and free roaming around his house) a blue marker might pop up.

If it does, investigate what’s going because it might be a kid telling you his bike got stolen.

If it is, then get it back for him, because later he’ll text you saying he is a millionaire, and give $100,000!

Infinite Ammu-nation Robberies

Here’s a way to keep robbing Ammu-nation stores. It works because the money in Ammu-nation cash registers respawns very quickly!

  1. Head to an Ammu-nation store.
  2. Shoot the clerk from doorway.
  3. Empty the cash registers.
  4. Exit the store and walk about three car lengths away (you’ll get to know the correct distanc if you keep doing this…).
  5. Turn around and re-enter store – you’ll find that the money has re-spawned!
  6. Grab the cash, exit and repeat.

Infinite Money #1

Note: this has been patched and the character switching method will now only work if you have an un-patched copy of the game. However, if instead of switching characters you quick save and then reload your game the briefcase will re-spawn.

You need to either swim or ideally drive a boat to the location shown in the map below in Paleto Bay, and then dive into the ocean and head to the very bottom.


You should see a sunken plane and to the right of it there will be a treasure box with $12,000 in it.

Once you’ve got the box the first time, switch characters and then change back again to your original character. The box should have respawned! If it hasn’t try swimming further away and then doing the character switch back and forth.

Repeat this as many times as you like.

Infinite Money #2

Note: this has been patched and the character switching method will now only work if you have an un-patched copy of the game. However, if instead of switching characters you quick save and then reload your game the briefcase will re-spawn.

This infinite money hint operates on the same principles as the tip above except that the box contains $20,000!

Infinite Money #3

Note: this has been patched and the character switching method will now only work if you have an un-patched copy of the game. However, if instead of switching characters you quick save and then reload your game the briefcase will re-spawn.

This infinite money hint operates on the same principles as the tip above except that the box contains $25,000! There is also an MG SMG Rifle located among the wreckage. The best way to find it is follow the long pole till you come to the end of it and on a slab that the wreckage is standing on you will find the gun. There is also an Armor vest which is located near some rocks near the wreckage (face the wreckage with the briefcase on your left side and you are facing the hull door, then on your right hand side is where the vest is located). Also Grenades are located right next to the wreckage (go to the side where the money is and go straight down and the grenade will be right there). I would not recommend trying to find the MG Rifle in the dark it is almost impossible best to wait till daytime to try and find it.

thanks AiraCobra


Infinite Money #4

Note: this has been patched and the character switching method will now only work if you have an un-patched copy of the game. However, if instead of switching characters you quick save and then reload your game the briefcase will re-spawn.

This infinite money hint operates on the same principles as the tips above. The briefcase only contains $9,000 however there are several weapons hidden about in this section such as an UZI, Pump Action Shotgun, Sticky Bombs, Grenades Sniper Rifle & Carbine Assault Rifle. It will take at least 15 minutes to find all of them though. I would not recommend trying to find these in the dark as you will lose your bearings and miss some.


thanks AiraCobra

Maximum Money Limit

This more of a warning than anything else, particularly if you are using some of the stock tips found on this page!

The maximum amount of money that any character can have in the game is $2,147,483,647.

This number (2147483647) is the maximum value for a 32-bit signed integer in computing. This article explains it better than we can…

If you go one dollar over this amount, your in-game money will drop to -2,147,483,646 (yes, negative)!

You won’t be able to go over from stock investing (they won’t pay you out the full amount) or getting money dropped from pedestrians (they stop dropping money) but you can go over by getting money from a cash register for example.

Robbing Any Store

This will let you rob any store whatsoever that is open for business!

Walk into the store (clothes, ammo, whatever…) far enough so that the door closes behind you. Then begin to walk out but stop half way so that your character is keep the door open with it swung outside (the door must be swung outside, not inside).

This will allow you to equip a weapon! Point it at the store clerk and you should then be able to walk back into the store with it drawn and rob the joint.

If you shoot the registers they should open up and money bags will appear.

Extra tip: wait until the door closes fully and you’ll have more time until the cops show up. Cool huh?

Update: If you shoot the shop door a few times before entering, you shouldn’t need to fuss around with keep it open as above.

Save Sonny’s Daughter – $60K

This explains how to do a “random encounter” in which you’ll receive $60,000.

Head to the northern part of Paleto Bay (as shown in the map below) and you should find a random encounter where two guys were getting ready to kill a girl (the girl is actually mob boss “Sonny’s” daughter).


Kill the guys and take the girl to where she wants to go (Vinewood).

Then later you’ll get a call from her and $60,000 wired to your account.

    Ammu-nation tip:
    1. Shoot clerk from doorway.
    2. Empty registers.
    3. Exit store and walk about three car lengths away.
    4. Turn around and re-enter store.

    5. The money has respawned!
    6. Exit, repeat!

    • Edwin Finnerty

      This has been partially patched. The doors will lock and not let you in, BUT I parked a four wheeler in the doorway and it got stuck inside the door, allowing me to re-enter and collect the loot like I stated above (this is GinsuVictim).

      • Lucian Adamson

        I haven’t deleted it because im actually on my second play through and am now deep in GTA online now that it has become functional. It will ask for the update if you try to go online. If it does ask for it on game start-up, you just press O and bypass it. You just wont be able to play online until you reinstall it… no biggie since its only 40 megabytes (about a 10 second download for me)

      It is an interactive app for your iPhone. You must, in real life, download the iFruit app for your real life iPhone and then you can interact with Chop via this connection between yourself and the game; from your iPhone.

  • alisha

    Who’s sunny

  • Rhys

    Online or campaign?

  • MixOfEvil

    I don’t really see the point in trying to make more money…if you play the stock market correctly in conjunction with Lester’s Assassination missions, you’ll hit the money limit and have as much money as the game allows anyway. I can see it if you’re not that far into the game yet, since you could use the money to upgrade cars, buy weaponsz etc, but in the end it doesn’t make a huge difference.

    I sold my old Samsung smart phone on http://www.ching4ring.comfor more than I paid for it. They paid my shipping, wiped my phone and paid me the same day they go my phone via PayPal. That old phone has been sitting in a drawer for months and I never knew I could get money for it ($200!). I didn’t feel right throwing it away and am glad I didn’t. I didn’t have to take a bunch of annoying phone calls or meet strangers in dark alleys to sell it. Highly recommended!

    I like how people claim these are cheats when in fact all it is is tips on how to play the game and make money. Second I have followed many guides for GTA 5 for the ps4 and beat the game 5 times now. I have yet to make over 700. Million using the stock market guide. Most say you can make 1.4 to 2.4 billion. I haven’t seen it yet.

    The money amount is wrong. I earned 2.4 Billion from investing in Pisswaiser when it was at $3. When I realized it peaked at $300, I sold all my shares and had a total of just over 2.4 billion Dollars. Go back couple years on my facebook page and you will see the picture with the amount.
