Grand Theft Auto Online Bonuses & Sales

Now that the Motorcycle club update has been announced Rockstar Games is offering yet another week of discounts for in-game items as well as Double RP and Cash for select missions. These discounts and bonuses will last from September 23 until September 29.

Lamar's Lowrider Missions and the Entourage Adversary Mode are paying out double RP and double in-game money. A Stunt Race playlist featuring the Chiliad, Plummet, Canyon Crossing, and Vespucci Stunt Races is also paying out double RP and double in-game money. This week's Premium Stunt Race has rotated to East Coast; you can access it via your phone or by heading to the mission marker in Legion Square.

As for discounts, an eclectic mix of high-end vehicles have had their prices lowered by 25%. Supercar fans can take advantage of discounts on the Progen T20, Pegassi Zentorno, and Emperor ETR1. If you'd like to slowboat it through the streets of Los Santos you can snap up the Gallavanter Baller LE LWB, and if you're going to drive through the rougher parts of town you can grab the armored version at a discount as well.

Lastly, a selection of Buckingham vehicles is on sale if you're looking to spend an absurd amount of in-game money on something ostentatious. The Volatus, Swift, and Luxor are all part of the sale, and if you wanna fly like a baller you can grab the gold-plated Swift Deluxe or Luxor Deluxe as well.

Quick Take

The Rockstar Publisher Weekend is a nice sale, but some of the bundle choices are a bit strange. There is no "Buy every GTA game" bundle nor is there a "Buy every Rockstar Games title" bundle. Only the two most expensive Shark Cards are discounted which is also really unfortunate. Rockstar Games seems content to keep Grand Theft Auto V priced pretty high for the foreseeable future. The online discounts are nice, but I personally feel pretty set with the arsenal I purchased in last week's Warstock Cache & Carry sale. As for the online bonuses, the 2X RP and cash might actually make Lamar's missions somewhat bearable. If that's not your thing, I had a blast playing Entourage last night so give it a spin!

Do you own Grand Theft Auto V? If not, how low does the price have to drop for you to consider picking it up? Do any of the vehicles in the Grand Theft Auto Online sale particularly interest you? Let us know in the comments below!
