Grand Theft Auto 5's online mode has been trying to get past the various launch problems it has suffered to become the experience that Rockstar had promised gamers. Now it looks as though it is moving past the problems and towards adding new features. Though it may be some time until users get to perform heists with their fellow crew members, there are several ways to get money in Grand Theft Auto 5 Online.

One of the easiest ways for users to get a huge chunk of change is to qualify for the stimulus package Rockstar is giving users as an apology for the glitches the online mode has had. If users play the game in October and download the latest patch for the game, they will get two gifts of $250,000 from Rockstar, which they can use to buy property and customize their cars. However, players must log into the game in the month of October or they will not get this cash prize.

While playing the game, one of the most efficient way to get money is to perform jobs. Selling stolen cars can only be performed once per in-game day (48 minutes), while jobs can be performed multiple times a day. In addition, jobs gives players both rank and cash. They can level up and gain access to more and more lucrative jobs and missions to get even more cash. Players can group together and perform jobs together if they choose. By creating a job playlist everyone can grind out experience points and money by repeatedly doing jobs in the playlist. 

Another quick way a group of players can get some fast cash is to play survival matches, which are unlocked at level 15. If users make it to level 10, they will get an easy $20,000. By working together, a group of four players can get to level 10 in about 10 minutes. By properly investing in weapons and armor, survival mode is a solid option for getting money.

More advanced players who are level 50 can send out NPC thugs to mug other players, which can be an easy way to grab extra cash. However, if players are smart and constantly deposit their money in the bank they significantly reduce the risk of losing their money this way. Users can use the smartphone in the game to deposit their earnings after completing jobs and missions, and doing so prevents the loss of cash from muggings and other such tactics.
