Each Thursday, Rockstar releases the GTA Online weekly update—refreshing the multiplayer sandbox with new weekly discounts and bonuses. It's a great way to pick up some of the fastest cars in GTA Online, or to snag a new businesses without committing to days of grinding for cash. And even if you already own the business featured in a given week, its refurbishment options are usually on sale, too. Maybe you'll finally be able to pimp out that bunker.

This week, players can get 50% off a Motorcycle Clubhouse and its associated businesses. These are an OK earner if you're big into the passive side of cash gathering, requiring you to run supply and sale missions to manage effectively.

There are five MC businesses—meth, coke, weed, document forgery and counterfeit cash. And unless you think you'll be regularly running all five (trust me, you won't), you should only really consider the better paying options: coke, meth, and cash.

One additional benefit is that MC businesses also unlock new options for your Nightclub's warehouse, so if you picked that up on the cheap last week, now you can get it fully setup. Again: you only really want the three best earners, as your other two Nightclub staff are better off working on the Bunker and Crate/Hangar businesses.

What are the GTA Online weekly bonuses?

GTA Online Bonus $ and RP

As a little bonus for setting up your MC Business, their corresponding sell missions will payout double this week. You'll also get triple payout for being a CEO's associate—meaning it's a good week to help some friends with their vehicle sales.

  • 2x $ and RP on MC Businesses
  • 2x $ and RP on Contact Missions
  • 2x $ and RP on Open Wheel Races
  • 3x $ and RP on Bodyguards/Associates Payout
