The headline is, that although you'll no longer be able to buy Red Shark Cards for a quick boost, any other card you purchase in GTA Online will be much better value for money.

Any Red Shark Cards you currently have will still be redeemable even after the update. They will continue to have the same value, at $100k or $115k for GTA+.

When will the Shark Card Changes take effect?

All these changes will come into effect for GTA Online on December 9th, 2022, Rockstar has announced. Fortunately though, any cards you purchase between then and now will also have their value increased, and the difference will be added to your bank account by the time the update drops.

While some of the changes are small, on the upper ends the difference is upwards of $2 Million, which will make a huge difference to veteran players. The changes should give a much-needed boost to the online economy.

If you see any incorrect values in the Shark Cards, be sure to restart GTA Online, and you should see the changes take effect.
