Guide: Quick Ways To Earn Bells In Animal Crossing New Horizons

Although many players are only just starting their deserted island adventure in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, sooner or later they’ll be finding themselves in need to Bells (AKA money) to fund all sorts of improvements and endeavors.

Luckily, various outlets who already have some experience with the game have compiled a few tips and tricks for earning lots of Bells quickly in Animal Crossing: New Horizons.

Check them out below:

  • Sell ​​Fruits
    • There are 5 types of fruits available in game ( apples, pears, oranges, cherries and peaches), players will start out with only one type growing natively on their island.
    • A single native fruit sells for 100 bells while other players’ island fruit sells for around 500 bells each.
      • Visiting others’ islands and bringing back their fruit will allow players to grow their own “non-native” trees which grow that fruit.
    • Sometimes the trees will bear a perfect fruit (golden fruit) which sells for 600 bells if its native, and 3,000 bells if it was originally from another players’ island.
  • Sell ​​fossils
    • Every day new fossils can be dug up from cracks in the ground.
    • Once the Museum is available, they can be sold there for large sums of bells (e.g. a Triceratops torso will sell for 5,000).
  • Sell ​​fish and insects
    • Fish and Insects can be caught all over the island.
    • Certain special characters will purchase them for different amounts of bells. 
  • Shake Trees
    • Sometimes, you can get useful materials (and fruit) from shaking trees or chopping them down. Beware of Wasps though.
  • Hitting rocks
    • Hitting a rock with your shovel will create smaller rocks, minerals and clay. 
    • All of these items can be sold for small quantities of berries. 
    • On rare occasions, you can even find a gold nugget that can be sold for many bells. 
    • Every day, a new rock on the island will be designated as the money rock, which could contain as much as 8,000 berries.
  • Sell Weeds
    • A full stack of 99 weeds that grow on the island can be sold for 990 bells.
    • Gathering weeds can not only bring some small profits, but also keeps the island neat.
  • Planting money trees
    • To discover a money tree, first look for golden glowing cracks in the ground (similar to fossil cracks)
    • Digging one up will allow you to find 1,000 bells
    • However, if these bells are re-buried, they will grow into a Money Tree after a few days.
    • Each Money Tree harvest yields 3,000 bells.
  • Bell Coupons
    • At a certain point in the game (once you have made enough progress in the narrative) you will be able to redeem the  Bell Coupons within Resident Services using Nook Miles.
      • Nook Miles can be earned by completing various tasks in the game, given by the Nook Phone
    • Bell coupons cost 500 Nook Miles and can be exchanged at Nook’s Cranny for 3,000 bells.
    • There is no limit to the number of coupons you can buy in one day and you will receive the coupon immediately.
