Animal Crossing: New Horizons guide: Use time travel stalk market to make millions of bells, turnips

The grind in Animal Crossing: New Horizons can be unforgiving. While some of us might have a great deal of extra free time due to the coronavirus quarantine, there’s still a massive hurdle to cross if you want to build bridges, expand your house, or even move property on your island. While the bell grind could be overcome with a simple duplication glitch prior to version 1.1.0, Nintendo was swift to roll out a fix for that. But when a door closes, a window opens. So now, we have an Animal Crossing: New Horizons guide to time travel, the Stalk Market, and selling turnips to help you raise millions of bells fast. We’ll be listing out the risks and the rewards associated with this exploit, as well as providing tips on how you can make the most out of your efforts.

Now that you know how to “time travel” in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, we can talk about how to rake in huge bell profits on the Stalk Market. Let’s start with the easiest and safest way to exploit it in your favor:

  • Find a friend whose selling prices for turnips are 300 bells or more to maximize profits.
  • Set your system clock to last Sunday, specifically somewhere between 5:00 a.m. and 12:00 p.m. when Daisy Mae is active on your island. We suggest closer to 5:00 a.m. if you plan to do this a few times.
  • Purchase as many turnips as you possibly can. You’ll want to empty your inventory if you’re planning to sell a great deal.
  • Have your friend with the high-priced turnips open their gates at the airport.
  • Travel to their island and sell your turnips wholesale.

You can repeat this process as many times as you want to make bells on the Stalk Market. Just be warned that time-traveling backwards with existing turnips results in them rotting.

You can triple your bell count many times over in your Animal Crossing: New Horizons island

money really can grow on trees!

Within even just an hour of doing this exploit, you can easily make well over a million bells. Just be sure to talk to your villagers and pick up any extra weeds that might have populated on your island.

If you still want to get your bells legitimately in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, then your best bet is to catch as many tarantulas as you possibly can and sell them to Timmy and Tommy — we have a guide on the most efficient way to capture tarantulas too. Alternatively, grow a money tree!
