Need a yacht but you're broke?
Rockstar has your back.
The Double GTA$ + XP event has been announced by Rockstar on Twitter today and will be running all this weekend.... because on the week before Christmas you have nothing else to do *cough cough*, star wars, *cough cough*.
Assuming the PSN and XBL services stay up this weekend, Rockstar are promising multiple events both in the game lobby and in special missions. so if you're in a session with a VIP, make friends with them and get hired.
- or -
If you're already rich and have a VIP status (but are now broke as you spent all your cash on a yacht), hire people and win that money back!
More info after the pic!
Rockstar are obviously pushing this hard, and have teamed up with the usual suspects on Twitch.tv & YouTube such as Ltzonda.

DOUBLE GTA$ & DOUBLE RP ADVERSARY MODES inc. EXTRACTION
Like any business, legitimate or otherwise, expansion requires investment and a focus on the bottom line. Your biggest profit margins this weekend can be found playing Double GTA$ & Double RP Adversary Modes. As is standard, a simple one button launch from the GTAV start screen puts you directly into a Playlist featuring the brand new Adversary Mode Extraction. The perfect arena in which to hone your SecuroServ skills, Extraction sends in a team of Bodyguards to work with their team member, the Target - stranded after a plane crash - to rendezvous in the extraction zone and get them to the evac point. They're up against the opposing Hit Squad who have caught wind of the operation and are on a mission to take out the Target.
DOUBLE GTA$ SEA RACES
With GTA Online: Executives and Other Criminals, the ultimate symbol of wretched excess - your own luxury Yacht - is now available to purchase. To get your sea legs ready for a life on the open water, we're doubling the GTA$ bonuses on all Sea Races all weekend. Those extra dollars will come in handy when customizing your new Yacht, whether you go for the standard Orion, or go all in on the ultra-deluxe Aquarius which comes complete with a Hot Tub and a new SuperVolito Carbon helicopter.
UP TO 50% DISCOUNTS ON ARMOR, WEAPONS, AMMO & MORE
Cut your overhead this weekend with a hefty 50% off discount on a range of gear intended to protect you, your VIP and your vehicles. There are 50% off discounts on Body Armor, Bulletproof Tires and Vehicle Armor, so you can take to the streets with confidence and shrug off any inconvenient bullet sprays. The tire and armor bonuses extend to the 10 new non-armored land vehicles that were released this week, including the Imponte Nightshade, Declasse Mamba, Bravado Verlierer and the Benefactor Turreted Limo.
If you're worried about keeping your new Yacht in pristine condition, don't miss the 50% off discount on RPG Rockets to get the upper hand in Piracy Prevention, Executive Search or any of the other VIP and Bodyguard Freemode games. For those needing new arms and extra ammo, look out for the 50% off discount on Sniper Rifles (perfect for taking out any VIPs without having to engage their Bodyguards); grab the 50% discount off Pistol ammo for your brand new Heavy Revolver and for those wanting a signature look to their weaponry, there's a 50% discount on gun engravings.
Finally, to ensure you can always get yourself to your new Yacht this weekend (or prepare to board someone else’s), we’ll also be featuring 25% off all Docktease Services for whatever your aquatic needs may be.
