There is no doubt that you will spend days earning Bells (the game’s currency) in Animal Crossing New Horizons, and you’ve probably wondered how you can get your hands on a lot of them fast. For whom do the bells toll? They toll for thee! Here are some tips that you can use whether you’re just getting started or looking for new suggestions.
Earn 12,500 bells daily by catching wasps
Each day the hardwood and cedar trees on your island contain five wasps. Each of those wasps you can take and sell in the nook store for 2,500 bells.
Earn 16,000 bells daily from your money rock
Each day one random rock on your island will be a money rock. If you hit the rock eight times a total of 16,000 bells will come out. Each hit gives you around twice as many bells as the previous hit so half the money, 8,000 bells, comes out the very last time that you hit it.
Earn 21,000 bells daily by planting money trees
Each day on your Island there is a glowing spot on the ground. If you dig there you will find 1,000 bells and the hole will keep glowing. If you plant 10,000 bells into that glowing hole, it will make a money tree sapling. In three days that sapling will mature into a money tree bearing 30,000 bells. At that point, you can shake the bells and collect them, then chop down the tree.
10,000 bells are the optimal amount to plant. If you plant less than that you won’t get 30,000 out. If you plant more than that, the amount you get back will be random and often less than you planted. Planting 10,000 bells nets a tidy profit of 20,000 bells plus the 1,000 bells you dug out of the ground.
Earn 50,000 bells per hour catching sharks
When sharks are out, you can earn a substantial amount of money catching them in the summertime. Look for fish shadows in the ocean that have fins and only catch those fish. In the worst case, you will catch a suckerfish worth 1,000 bells, but all other sharks are worth far more than 15,000 bells. If you aren’t finding enough sharks on your island, head to a random nook miles island and fish there.
Catching And Selling Tarantulas And Scorpions
Catching tarantulas on your island is just as horrifying as it sounds; they only appear at night and they will attack you, so you must approach them with caution. Each Tarantula you catch can be sold for a massive 8,000 Bells!
Much like the tarantula, when you approach a scorpion, it will first raise its guard, and then if you continue moving, it will start to chase after you. Instead of running away, you can turn the tables and catch it in your net if you’re standing at a good enough distance. Just like tarantulas, scorpions can sell for 8,000 Bells each.
