GTA Online Shark Cash Cards (Full Guide 2023)

GTA Online has impressive features like owning a club or driving tanks. However, players should grind missions non-stop as a paywall locks them. Progress-wise, little cash is earned, and playing becomes less fun.

Because of limitations, Rockstar Games introduced Shark Cash Cards – an alternative to countless hours of grinding.

What are Shark Cash Cards in GTA Online?

Shark Cash Cards in GTA Online are an optional form of microtransaction that offers a different amount of in-game money.

There are currently five Shark Cash Cards available for purchase, with one option discontinued.

Shark Cash Cards are advertised on an in-game radio, featuring Red, Tiger, Bull, and Great White Shark.

Whale and Megalodon Shark Cash Cards were introduced later to players in 2013 and 2014, respectively. The new add-ons offer more GTA Online virtual credits to support players accessing expensive heists or vehicles.

The following table shows all Shark Cash Cards in GTA Online with their respective value, updated in December 2022.

When to Buy a Shark Card?
