So I just cheked my stats .....

 

Here is my total earned and total spent...

Total Earned

$3,676,890

Total Spent

$3,667,309

 

My bank Balance currently stands at $0 - so I am guessing that I have dropped a total of £9581.00 since I first started playing..

 

Anyone else (apart from people gifted money) terrible at savings :panic:

 

Looking forward to the stock markets actually working so I can invest.

You drop some money when you die. So some might go there.

1)Use a pistol for mission whenever possible (it's the most common weapon to pick up ammo for).

2)Rob some stores. You get almost 2k from each store. 

3)Don't spend any money... (obvious)

The fad now is:  Get broke; blow up some PVs.

 

Was happening a ton last night in my pub lobbies.  It sounded like some teenagers with bad slurrs, and they wanted everyone to know they were broke and coming for your PV.

 

This game get funnier every time I play it.  R* might not have a f*cking clue; but the sh*tty users are making one hell of a good game.

Wtf are you people doing ?? My expenses only account for about 30% of my overall income. I can buy anything I want right now and have plenty of cash to spare.

If there really are so many stupid players that can't make money, then you need an easier game like pokemon or sports games.

If not, learn to shoot, sell cars legit every 48 minutes, and don't go around f*cking sh*t up. Simple.

Why do you people think the stock market is going to become available? It's a single player feature only. It's not going to open for Online use.

I'm not sure if I'm any good with money.  Once the amount gets over 9 numbers in length then I get confused.

 

I also tend to have a fluctuating amount in my pocket - just pocket change.  That floats around the $1,000,000 mark, purely because that's the biggest amount you can withdraw and I'd hate to not have enough for snacks and fizzy pop drinks.

Well, for starters I still have the $500k that Rockstar dished out in October..... I've never felt the need to dip into or below that.

The biggest thing is if you want to make money without cheating is.....PATIENCE. Since the $500k Rockstar bonus....I've been pretty much been doing nothing but selling Ballers and running Coveted missions so much I'm almost sick of running them.

I'm now at $4,500,XXXk and pushing for $5million. Once I reach that point, I'll most likely save up for another $700,000 or so and finally be able to pick up my Entity.

This dude is absolutely right everyone. We should just all be playing Pokemon. The purpose of this game is to spend as little as possible and just accumulate a massive pile of cash while you drive around in an unmodfied futo with only the gun Lamar gave you. I should listen to this guy after all his title is my "momma's P.I.M.P"

No ones saying money is hard to earn, we just like spending. If your only using 30% of what you earn you're the one missing out.

If you don't blow up any PVs; restrict your usage of explosives and pegasus vehicles; only limit your spending to buying ammo and snacks and do a few missions here and there, then it's quite easy to "save" money.

 

I probably lose about 10-20k a day playing like that. On my most expensive days, I might blow 200K but I do not like to talk about those.

 

Either way, if I went mission crazy then I'd probably be able to get my money back and then some (even if only a little more). But freeroam is king in my eyes, and it's an expensive beast to feed.

1. Your expenses account for 77% off the cash you have spent. Earned $3525460 , spent $2740495 , cash $79833

2. You can't buy what you want with $798,331 , plenty of things you can't buy.

3. "If there really are so many stupid players that can't make money, then you need an easier game like pokemon or sports games.
" - I am a lower level and have earned more than you - so your

point is invalid.
 

4. "learn to shoot" - I have killed 1678 players to date, you have killed 443 to date.

 

5.  "sell cars legit every 48 minutes" - You have accumulated $86,892 from car sales, I have accumulated $1,444,392.

 

Please don't try be a troll, or you will be trolled back.

Kind regards.

Yeah, I almost never use grenades, sticky bombs or the grenade launcher....s**ts expensive! I'd say about 85% of the time I'm running the Coveted mission. During that time I'd say 90 to 95 percent of the time I'm sniping everybody and when I'm not doing that I try to use the combat pistol as much as possible to conserve bullets.


I think most of these players that claim they're constantly poor are poor because of 'poor money management/overspending' and straight up laziness!

no the most irresponsible I've been with my money so far has been since I was able to buy the cargobob and CE cars. I dumped a 100k into them which I shouldn't have cause there going bye bye sooner or later. But damn the hotknife just oozes sexy.

You should have glitched or gave r* more money for cashcards, these are / were your only 2 realistic options - I glitched lsc and I have been proven correct for doing so.
