bank vs cash?

I was just wondering what the difference is between having money in the bank and as cash?

People can steal your cash if you have over 5k. Putting it in the bank makes it untouchable.

Ok, how can people steal money? Is it some kind of ability they can do if they are next to you?

Don't you need some money on you to buy certain things?

As far as I can see, the only thing you can't buy with the money in your account is a soda from a vending machine. But you can walk right over to a store and buy it there.

^^ Resurrecting an old thread here, but there are at least two other cash-only expenditures in-game:

 

* Taxis (~$54 per ride, might depend on distance/time)

 

* Strippers, etc.

 

Anyone aware of anything else that you can only buy via cash?

You can only bet in races and combat jobs with cash (non-banked) money.

I think for races where you don't own the car class. Wasn't there a rental fee?

 

 

Ohh and impromptu races.

Another one I just found (not an expenditure per se, but still applies):

 

* If you're carrying cash and die you can drop up to $500.

 

...nothing new; I just thought it dropped $500 of your money whether cash or banked.

yes but just withdraw the minimum you need for the purchase.

 

i always bank my cash so there's no way anyone can get my cash if they kill me.

Only thing cash is good for is hookers.

and for getting your car out of the impound lot when you don't feel like dealing with the cops.

The police only take cash (or a call from the Assistant) to release impounded vehicles.

Strippers and hookers are cash-only.

Betting in races/etc. requires cash.

 

It's good to keep a little cash on-hand, but bank all the rest.

"Hey come to the strip club!"

 

 

I don't think he wanted me to set everything on fire when I got there though.

There should be different banks, competing with each other for your business. Loans to buy stuff with violent debt collectors if you default. But interest paid on your savings, investment opportunities, the works

Random timing because I found out yesterday if you bank your money during the cab ride you get a wanted level at the end, when you can't pay.

 

I like to imagine the driver watched me stuffing nearly a million dollars into my magic phone ATM before he got pissy about sixty bucks.

 

Can you share cash through Inventory if you've already banked it? That's about the only other time I can think it might matter.

Can't believe nobody has mentioned Lamar's mugger yet. One time I mugged an idle player for over 100K of hard-earned job-money. $10,000 every 7 minutes until the poor f*ck finally timed out. The morale of the story: bank your cash BEFORE you go take a sh*t!

The car wash only takes cash, if I'm not mistaken.

The mugger is definately one of the most under rated features of the game. The only reason to bank your cash is to keep muggers from stealing it, other than that I dont think you can lose a substantial amount of money any other way (theres the $500 medical fee if you die butthats nothing compared to losing $10,000).

 

Reasons for having cash on the other hand are:

 

- Strippers (from the club and off the street)

- Betting in races/deathmatches

- Taxi fares

- Car wash

- Sharing cash (from last job)

 

Can't think of any others atm..

Another reason is for just for having cash on you so you don't use your card. When I leave my apartment, I'm like "how much cash should I withdraw?" Then I take about 500-1500 dollars. Maybe 2500 max but I don't want to make myself to hot. I think having 1500 is the best option because you do everything you just mentioned and not have to use your savings/Checking account. Speaking of finances there should be a savings account. It's kinda hard to save because it's like putting half eaten ice cream in the fridge...it's just going to get finished. I think they should have a savings account added tbh. Edited by seven50iL

I never bank any of my cash. It always seemed like too much of a bother. I'd rather just have all of it on me at all times.

I bank mine at the end of each session so that I always start a new one with zero cash on hand.
