With the update released April 23, 2020, the max amount of Bells you can receive from Bank Interests has been decreased to 9,999 Bells, a mere tenth of what it was before.
The rate was also decreased from 0.5% to 0.05%.
If you want to recieve interest on your Bells, you need to put money into your Savings account on the NookStop ATM at Resident Services before the end of the month. Depending on the amount of savings, your money will increase at the start of next month.
You can see how much money you got from interest in a letter that's sent to you from Bank of Nook.
You get a 0.05% Interest Rate on the money in your Savings account every month. It doesn't matter when you put the money in. For example, you'll get the Interest the 1st of February no matter if you put in the Savings the 1st or 31st of January.
|Saved Money||Interest Rate||Money Gained|
|10,000 Bells||0.05%||5 Bells|
|10,000 Bells × 0.05% = 5 Bells|
If you save up 10,000 Bells, you'll get a 5 Bells Interest the next month. Which means your new Savings total will be 10,005 Bells.
You get the total Interest from your last save till the next time you launch the game. For example, if you deposit money in January and launch the game in March, you will receive two months of Interest.
However, the max amount of Bells you can receive is capped, so make sure you open the game to collect your interests every month if you have a lot of Bells in your Savings.
|Saved Money||Interest Rate||Money Gained|
|First Month: 5,000,000 Bells × 0.05% = 2,500 Bells
Second Month: 5,002,500 Bells × 0.05% = 2,501 Bells
You get more Money after each month passed.
However, with the new rates, the amount of money you earn increase very little every month.
The amount after the decimal point is rounded down.
When Interest is paid on your Savings, you will get a letter from Bank of Nook at the start of the month. This way you can see your gained Interest without going to the NookStop ATM.
Once you reach 9,999 Bells from Interests, whether over one month or several years, you won't be able to receive any more money until you open the game, claim the interest and save.
Here you can find our calculations on how many years it would take to get the maximum of 9,999 Bells in Interest.
You can use it to see how far in time you should travel based on your current savings.
Tip: To get the max of 9,999 Bells in interests in a month, you need to have 19,998,000 Bells in your Savings account.
