The Nook Miles app as shown on NookPhone

Nook Miles are a type of currency introduced in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. For completing various activities on the island, the player will earn miles that can be exchanged for items.[1] The app upgrades to Nook Miles+ after repaying the player's initial debt.


Nook Miles may be redeemed via the Nook Stop to unlock pro Design, new haircuts, or purchase items like Bell Voucher, Nook Miles Ticket, DIY recipes for fences, outdoor furniture, and some Nook Inc. collectibles.
