Even Animal Crossing can’t escape the commercial currents flowing around your island home.

Head into your local Nook’s Cranny and you’ll find a sizable discount on everything available.

Nook Friday is a new event which runs from November 26 to November 30. During this window, all items in Nook’s Cranny – that’s your island’s local shop run by the lovable Timmy and Tommy – will be available at a 30% discount. Unlike many real stores, they aren't even marking up prices in advance to trick you into thinking it's a bigger discount!

As if that sizable price reduction wasn’t good enough already, it applies to everything on sale there during the length of the event. That includes seasonal items which are already on sale and everything included in the stock cupboard like tools and recipe items. 

It’s worth visiting each day to see which Turkey Day and unique items are on offer for cheap, and you can also collect any of the expensive DIY recipe packs at a reduced cost.

By far the best bonus of Nook Friday, however, is that it offers a brilliant chance to stock up on tools. No-one likes breaking a shovel while bashing rocks to hunt for gold nuggets, but worse still is the realization that you haven’t got any spare shovels waiting as a replacement. Looks like it’s time to grab that axe and gather some wood once more! Purchasing a bunch of shovels and axes for cheap will save you plenty of crafting time in future, and now that you can build outdoor storage sheds you can easily access your budget-bought stash at any time.

If your Animal Crossing: New Horizons Nook Friday shopping has you interested in securing some real-world discounts, you should absolutely check out our page covering Nintendo Switch deals for Black Friday 2021. We’ve also, of course, got all the discounts available on HyperX headsets, earbuds, mice, and more collected for you.
