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!

Plant A Money Tree

Dig Up Bells From Shiny Marks On The Ground

Dig Up Bells

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 Bells

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

Money Tree

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!

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.

I've found that going swimming and gathering sea creatures in the water roughly pay out about 20k per 6-7 mins

If you plant 100 bells in the glowing hole you get 3,000 bells. I’ve done this so many times.

What in the world..? These tips are all good ways to make bells. None of this is fake or “proven wrong”. I don’t understand why you thought that.
