ACNH Best Ways To Get Nook Miles [Top 3 Ways]

Earning Is Fun

Nook Miles are an important currency in New Horizons. They can be used to purchase all manner of things, from terraforming tools to exclusive DIYs and furniture. They are also the only in-game method of purchasing Nook Miles tickets. Time spent farming Nook Miles is never time wasted, so here are three ways to get the best out of your experience.


3. Play the game

Yep, it really is that easy. Simply playing the game at your own pace, chatting with your villagers and hunting for bugs and fish and doing whatever you feel like will all count towards Nook Miles achievements. Don’t forget to check in at the Nook Stop terminal to receive free Miles every day!

How to gather Nook Miles the relaxing way:

  • Talk to villagers.
  • Decorate your island.
  • Visit friends.
  • Plant trees and flowers.
  • Fish, dive, catch bugs and dig up fossils.
  • Enjoy the game!


2. Aim for long-term goals

Long-term goals are a great source of Nook Miles, because the further you progress, the more you receive. Check out the video linked above for some of the easiest long-term achievements, and you’ll be rolling in Miles in no time at all. 

How to farm long-term goals:

  • Pick an easy task to complete, such as planting trees, and plant as many as you need to.
  • Find goals that you’re pretty close to completing and complete them.
  • Be smart about it. If you’re close to completing a fishing milestone, consider digging up manila clams for the “Clam and Collected” achievement, then turn the clams into bait to catch fish.


1. Nook Miles+ 

Without a doubt the best way to farm Nook Miles is by completing the Nook Miles+ goals. If you optimize your inventory as demonstrated in the video linked above, you can earn over 10000 Miles every hour. Pretty cool!

How to make Nook Miles+ work for you:

  • Complete Nook Miles+ tasks. At the start of the day, some can be worth two to five times their original value!
  • Once a task is complete, move on to another.
  • Pick tasks you have the materials for, if needed.
  • Repeat the process until you’re swimming in Nook Miles.
