In GTA V Online there are currently three categories of Daily Collectibles: Treasure Chests, Hidden Caches, and Shipwrecks. You can find your progress on these by opening the Interaction Menu, selecting Inventory, then Daily Collectibles.
Once you've collected everything you will have earned GTA$ 125,000 and 9,000 RP. It's possible to do all of this in an hour or less, but if you don't do it the right way or are just very unlucky, it could take you a lot longer.
Yes, there are ways to make money faster, but getting all of the daily collectibles is a pretty chill option because it requires almost no skill. It's a nice option after a long day when you don't have the energy to do anything more strenuous. Just put on some sweet tunes and enjoy the scenery as you hunt for treasure.
There's one thing you should know before we get started: For two of the three Daily Collectible categories you'll need to own the Kosatka submarine. Assuming there's not a sale going on in the most recent GTA Weekly Update, that's GTA$ 2,200,000 up front, minimum. If you don't have it and can't afford it, you're stuck with just the Shipwrecks for now. (But if you haven't already, you can make over GTA$ 1 million by completing the quests listed in our article on how to become a millionaire when first starting GTA Online, which is a pretty good start.)
How to Get Both Daily Collectible Treasure Chests
In order to access the treasure chest locations, you'll need to have access to Cayo Perico island. This means you'll need to start the Cayo Perico heist in the control room of the Kosatka submarine. But don't worry; You don't need to complete the heist, or even succeed at a single prep mission. As soon as you initiate the heist you'll have all the access you need in order to collect the treasure chests.
For a more detailed description of exactly how to find the locations of the daily collectible treasure chests, read our article on how to get the daily treasure chests from Cayo Perico.
How to Get All 10 Daily Collectible Hidden Caches
In order to find the locations of the hidden caches, you'll need a vehicle that can use sonar. There are currently three vehicles in GTA V Online that fit the bill: The Kosatka, Avisa or Toreador. However, the Avisa and Toreador only gain access to sonar if you've already purchased the Kosatka and its Sonar Station upgrade. That means you'll need to put down GTA$ 3,400,000 just to get set up to find the hidden caches.
Once you've done that, you can learn exactly how to find and collect them all in our article on how to collect all 10 daily hidden caches.
How to Get the Daily Collectible Shipwreck
The shipwreck is perhaps the most anticlimactic of all the daily collectibles, and it usually takes the longest to find. However, unlike the other daily collectibles you don't need any special equipment in order to find the shipwreck spawn points so that's pretty sweet.
Each day there will be one shipwreck located in one of 30 spawn points around the coasts of San Andreas island. In order to find it you'll have to meticulously search through each of these points. The shipwreck is not always easy to see so using sound is highly recommended as a bell will ring when you're close.

How to Collect ALL Daily Collectibles As Fast As Possible
Now that you know how and where to find all of the daily collectibles, here's our recommended plan of action:
- Set your spawn point to the Kosatka. This way as soon as you enter the game you can begin your search.
- Head to the control room and sit in the driver's seat. Use your sonar and mark all of the Hidden Cache locations.
- Instead of collecting the Hidden Caches right away, first go to the Cayo Perico heist panel and head to the island. This way you won't waste any time getting back to your Kosatka later.
- Once you've collected the two Treasure Chests on Cayo Perico, begin a route around the edges of the island of San Andreas, stopping at each Shipwreck spawn point, as well as collecting each Hidden Cache as you go.
- If you're lucky you'll find the Shipwreck early on, which will greatly reduce the time it takes to make your way around the island collecting the rest of the Hidden Caches.
And that's it. In as little as 30 minutes and with very little effort you can now become GTA$ 125,000 richer every day!
