GTA 5 Money Cheat / Glitch?

Tips and tricks to make easy money in GTA 5 are right here. The GTA Online specific version to make money is here. You can also make millions on the stock market following this advice. Otherwise the only way to get GTA$ delivered directly to you in-game is here.

The GTA 5 cheat that we receive the most questions about is a money cheat or money glitch. Like the name suggests, when you activate this cheat or glitch, then you’d instantly receive a certain amount of in-game cash to spend.

The thing is that, despite it’s inclusion in prior Grand Theft Auto games, there is no money cheat in Grand Theft Auto 5 – either the single player story mode or in GTA Online.

And there is certainly no money glitch that exists (nor has there ever been one).

The only way to get more cash in GTA Online is via Shark Cards or to earn it. The only way to make more money in story mode is to earn it.

We decided to make this page just because we get so many emails sent in from gamers asking what the money cheat is for Grand Theft Auto 5. Despite having included such a cheat in previous Grand Theft Auto games, like GTA IV and GTA: San Andreas, Rockstar decided not to include a money cheat in GTA 5 (and there is no glitch to get money either).

Why might Rockstar Games have done this?

Well, it could be due to the fact that there is an in-game stock market system that is, in-part, affected by the actions of other gamers. So if, for example, you cheated yourself into millions of in-game dollars and then spent it all on stocks, that could alter the stock prices for other players too – including ones that didn’t cheat whatsoever. This would mean that your single player cheating was impacting the game experience for other single player non-cheating players – something that would not be tolerable or a good thing, in our opinion.

We think that the above is the most likely explanation for there being no money cheat in GTA 5 but we’d like to hear what you think on the matter too, so feel free to leave a comment below. And just to be clear one final time…

There is no money cheat or money glitch in Grand Theft Auto 5 (but if you want all the other cheats, click here)!

  1. Trying to get free $ for my son, he says you can do it and I’ve been going to a gaming location site that does not go through and work? Can someone please guide me?

    1. Hello all those websites are scams. Do not try and use them. As above, there is no way to get free $GTA for single player or GTA Online. The only way is to purchase Shark Cards. I repeat: everything else is a scam, they will ask you to complete “offers” which involve you buying something or signing up for something (and getting ripped off) or you installing a virus on your PC.

  2. The best thing – if not money cheats – is the GTA game that, where you beat a competition – say a loading platform – you got that business and could stop around several times a day to collect money. Same thing went for the ice cream place. Beat the bad guys, you get money from the ice cream place FOREVER. These places brought in huge amounts of constant revenue. The car dealership was another great feature that gave you an underground place to store tanks, cars, whatever, and they would always be there for you to use and replace. It was also EASY to fly a helicopter. And plane. WHY DID ROCKSTAR get rid of all these GREAT things and replace them with inferior stuff or make things that were originally easy to use difficult??? Limited money options? Almost no garages? And who wants to be FORCED to change their character in a game i.e., Franklin & Michael – not to mention the DOG’S view???!!!? Oh, and my BIGGEST gripe of GTA V…you can’t choose your view when you’re with a prostitute. The screen says you can. But you can’t. The views are fixed. You can only change them with the SELECT button. Once the “act” is over then the screen swivels like it did in every GTA version EXCEPT V. I don’t get it. I don’t understand why make something worse, or get rid of great things and replace them with less or nothing. I just don’t understand. Sorry.

  3. yes there is.
    1. go to ammunation in la mesa
    2. shoot the cashier with a shotgun (assault shot, supressor)
    3. leave, run to the end of the sidewalk (beginning of street)

    this definitely works on story mode… i haven’t tested online yet 🙁

    1. Really, Huh? I will have to tell my son this and see if he knows what Im talking about, trying to get him free $ and went to a site, Jacob…..called gaming locations and it does not go through….says at the end waiting for human verification…Im not a gamer like he is I have no idea, ya I play with him but not all this stuff???
