The cash bonuses this week are varied, with double cash and RP from Contact Missions sure to keep you busy. I recommend using an armoured car and playing solo to maximize the time for these missions, or Simeon’s car explosion missions might be a good choice as they are very quick and extremely easy.

Also don’t forget that Business Battles are paying out bonuses of $50,000 plus very cool and FREE T shirts. Great news for collectors of rare items.
