The best turnip prices in Animal Crossing history will available tonight
You’re invited… to Ally Island! Digital financial services company Ally Financial is launching a new effort that levels up the enjoyment of learning about finances, starting with a unique activation in “Animal Crossing: New Horizons.”
Only a third of Americans can answer four out of five basic financial questions, down from 42% a decade ago, with the biggest drop among young people ages 18-34.* Through a series of initiatives, Ally will bring lessons about money to where this generation spends its time: gaming.
The first of these kicks off tonight with the opening of Ally Island inside “Animal Crossing: New Horizons.” Concepts such as currency, interest rates and real estate are all part of the game, and Ally Island will give players the opportunity to not only improve their in-game financial positions, but also gain a deeper understanding of important money concepts.
Streamer and gamer KangGaming will officially unveil Ally Island tonight, 10/23, at 7:00 PM ET via his Twitch stream. Then, players can visit the island and take advantage of its Stalk Exchange, which will feature a record-breaking, game-shattering exchange rate of 1,000 bells per turnip. The island also provides a photo opp overlooking “Little Detroit,” hosts the game’s first golf tournament, and shows players what their savings can buy at Bucket List Beach. More info and a schedule of events can be found below. The island dream code is DA-9350-9609-6289.
