How to Get Bells in Animal Crossing New Horizons: Make Quick Money

Money, they say, makes the world go round, and this applies even to a video game world such as New Horizons’ island life. You’ll need Bells (money) to make virtually anything happen in the game and progress in your campaign.

Thankfully, you don’t have to spend real-world money to get Bells in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. You can get enough Bells just by completing certain tasks in the game. That’s exactly what you’ll learn in this guide, so keep reading to find out how to get bells in Animal Crossing fast.

5 Ways to Get Bells in Animal Crossing: New Horizons


Bells is one of the two currencies you can spend in New Horizons, with the second being Nook Miles. You’ll need it to pay off your mortgage, buy items, and pay off several debts you owe the king capitalist, Tom Nook.

While you’ll eventually and inevitably make more as you spend more time in the game, you can accelerate the process by being frugal with money and investing in items not native to your island. The following tips should help you beef up your Bells account in no time:

Don’t Sell Raw; Craft!

Bringing the raw materials you have together to craft something is a no-brainer. Check your DIY recipes and find something to create with them. You can sell crafted items to Timmy and Tommy at the Nook’s Cranny, a standalone store off the original Resident Services building.

But Timmy and Tommy are not your only sure plugs for selling items. NPCs such as Flick the chameleon and C.J the beaver will visit your island occasionally and offer irresistible Bells for certain items, better than what you’re offered at the Nook’s Cranny.

Invest in the Stalk Market

If you’re all about making some quick bucks, this is one of the surefire investments in New Horizons. All you have to do is buy some turnips from the NPC Daisy Mae and hope to sell them at your island’s Nook’s Cranny or a friend’s for profit.

Admittedly, you risk losses as well but can attenuate the odds greatly by following the guide on How to get turnips.

Import Foreign Fruits

Each player has fruits that abound on their island. Interestingly, this could be fruits other players lack on their island. How do you leverage this to this brim? Visit other islands and bring in fruits from there, hoping to sell them for profit.

You can even maximize the profitability by growing the said foreign fruits on your island and selling them in their multitudes. Check out our How to get different fruits guide for a better understanding.

Buy Bell Vouchers with Nook Miles


Nook Miles is the game’s alternative currency. The good news is you can harness the little you’ve amassed to get 3,000 Bells. Yes, for just 500 Nook Miles, you can purchase Bell Vouchers, each of which gives you 3,000 Bells.

Check Out Hot Items of the Day and Sell Them at the Nook’s Cranny

The Nooklings on your island will list Hot Items every day. If you have these items and sell them to them, you’ll earn profits two folds. Even if you don’t have the items, you can craft them quickly if you have the DIY recipes and turn them in at the Nook’s Cranny.

Final Notes

And that’s how to get Bells in Animal Crossing real fast. There are many opportunities to make money in the game, waiting to be tapped and made the most of. The ones mentioned in this guide are some surefire ways to make quick bucks, and I hope they help. And here I say, ‘Good luck.’
