What Are The Shiny Spots On The Floor In Animal Crossing New Horizons


Seen the sparkling yellow shiny spots on the floor? This guide on What Are The Shiny Spots On The Floor In Animal Crossing New Horizons explains what these special gathering points are for, how you can gather the items from them, and what items you can receive.

The shiny spots you see sparkling on the ground are very much like the water spouts on the beach, they represent a special, limited gathering location that disappears after you successfully gather a single item from that location. Much like the water spouts, you will need a very specific tool to harvest from these locations.

TIP: When you dig up the money from these special holes, you can plant the money to make a Money Tree. You won’t get as much cash immediately as keeping the sack of bells, but over time, it’s worth more.

Digging at these locations has so far provided us with Bells, the currency of New Horizons. If we find any other items at these shiny spot locations, we’ll be sure to let you know.
