Of all of the different mechanics in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, all the junk surrounding Tom Nook and Nook Miles is kind of poorly explained. Tom Nook is really important to the growth and prosperity of your island, so it kind of sucks that many of the uses of the items he sells are so poorly explained. One of the more common areas of confusion with the Nook Miles is just what the heck Bell Vouchers do, and how to reliably get them.
Saving up for Nook Miles Tickets is a big part of this game. Animal Crossing: New Horizon will hand the player tons of tasks to complete and resources to gather. These Nook Miles Tickets can be traded for new DIY Recipes, as well as personal upgrades like increased Pocket space, and more. Sure, it might all seem very obvious, but it’s nice to have things explained regardless.
How to grind Nook Miles
Upgrading Resident Services is the first step to getting these items en masse. Once that happens, you will see Tom Nook start trading various new goods, with Bell Vouchers being one of them. Each Vouchers costs 500 of the Nook Miles Tickets. If you bring the Bell Voucher to Nook’s Cranny, you can trade it in for Bells, which have a value of 3,000 Bells when traded in.
Also, you even get some of the Nook Miles for free. When you get access to the Nook Miles app on your NookPhone, open it up. You can get 500 miles for free when you first open the app. Use these to get an easy 3,000 Bells. The Nook Miles app is also one of the primary sources for the Tickets. As you use your phone, various alerts will pop up on it, claim these alerts in the phone to gain 300 Tickets each time.
As you play through the game, interacting with the DIY Recipes can be useful too. Any time you create new tools, look in the DIY Recipes section and you will earn Stamps. Bundles of 300 Tickets are earned by earning Stamps, as well as doing things like breaking your tools.
And it can also be very useful to clean out and explore your island. You can sell bundles of weeds and fruit to Timmy for a few Bells, around 300 per bundle of 20 fruit for example.
