Our Experience Selling Turnips
|Purchase Price||Sell Price||Profit|
|95 Bells||127 Bells||+33%|
At one time, we were able to make over 120,000 Bells. Of course, this requires an initial up front investment, but it's definitely worth your time. More importantly, you'll need a way to reliably determine if prices will go up or down - for that, make use of a price calculator!Check Out Our Turnip Price Calculator Here

Plant A Money Tree
Dig Up Bells From Shiny Marks On The Ground
One good way to make money is to a plant a money tree. First, seek out a sparkling golden shape on the ground and use your shovel! You should get a bag of Bells.
Bury The Bells Back In The Hole
Bury the bells you just obtained back in the hole there! If you see to this newly planted tree, it will eventually grow into a money tree!
Harvest A Limited Number Of Times
Although money actually grows on trees in Animal Crossing, each tree does have a limit, so you won't be able to farm one tree for money indefinitely. You will get 3 times the amount you planted for each tree!Check Out More Info On The Money Tree Here!
Sell Native Fruits On Other Islands
Your native fruits may not sell for much in your own island but you can travel to another player's island to sell them for more! Make sure to bring a couple of baskets for maximum profit.Check Out How To Play Online!
