Nook Miles (たぬきマイレージ Tanuki Mairēji?, Tanuki Mileage) are a type of currency in New Horizons that work similar to airline mileage programs in real life. Players earn Nook Miles from travel and participating in activities around the Deserted Island. Additionally, players can also get Nook Miles from completing tasks and stamp cards in the Nook Miles app section of the NookPhone. Since 500 miles can be redeemed for a 3000 Bells voucher in the Nook Stop, 1 mile is worth 6 Bells.

Nook Stop

One of the ways to earn Nook Miles is by using the Nook Stop. It will award you daily with Nook Miles in the following amounts shown below.

Day Number Miles Earned
Day 1 50 Nook Miles
Day 2 80 Nook Miles
Day 3 100 Nook Miles
Day 4 150 Nook Miles
Day 5 200 Nook Miles
Day 6 250 Nook Miles
Day 7+ 300 Nook Miles

Stamp Cards

In addition to earning Nook Miles, completing stamp cards also unlocks title keywords for the player's passport.

Nook Miles+

This is an additional service that unlocks once the player has paid the initial Resident Services fee of 5,000 Nook MilesNook Milesand chooses to upgrade to a house. It involves 5 randomly selected tasks that are individually replaced with a new task upon completion. After helping to build Nook's Cranny, the player will be granted 5 new tasks that grant twice as many Nook Miles compared to normal at the start of each day. This is only applied to the first 5 daily tasks; the rest will reward the normal amount of Nook Miles. After upgrading Resident Services, one of these double Miles tasks will occasionally be replaced with a task that rewards five times as many Nook Miles. Some events add a single special task each day that also has the 5x multiplier.
