Warning! Don’t participate in this random event until you complete the last story mission, and don’t forget to save the game before participate in it.

Shares Purchase Before the Random Event

Invest all the money of all three protagonists in Tinkle shares. To do it, open the web browser on your phone or another device, click on “Money and Services”, next click on BAWSAQ, go to “Markets”, find Tinkle (TNK) in the list and buy as many shares as you can. It’s advisable to keep a few thousand dollars for taxi services and other small expenses.

Then switch to the two other protagonists and do the same. After that, you are ready to start the random event.


Once on the side of the Great Ocean Highway, you will notice a man next to a broken Benefactor Schafter. Stop next to him, and he will ask to take him to the airport. You’ll have two and a half minutes to do this, so don’t drive too fast and avoid collisions. There will be no incidents along the way if you will not cause them yourself.

When you reach the airport, the man will thank you, give you $100, and recommend to buy shares in Tinkle, what you should have done already.

Shares Sale After the Mission

The shares that you bought before the random event will grow by about 33% within 24 in-game hours. Make sure that the growth of shares has reached about 33% and sell them. To do this, go to the LCN or BAWSAQ website, select the “My Portfolio” section and click the “Sell All” button.

Note: data on the change of the share prices are relevant for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. On PS3 and Xbox 360, you can earn more. The game updates can also affect the state of affairs.


  • It’s not necessary to go to bed several times to advance the time while you holding the shares. You can, for example, participate in some miscellaneous activities.
