Take a stroll or several through the trees and coins will fall out. This is a great way to make extra money when you’re a few coins short for a purchase you desire. Another wonderful trick to rake in the Pet Society coins is by shopping at the ‘Mystery Center.’ This technique is a gamble but it can be a prosperous one if you’re lucky. Buy a ‘mystery box’ and re-sell the items inside. Sometimes these packages can contain an expensive furniture or luxury item worth a hefty amount of coins. Planting crops or gardening can earn pet society coins also. Visit the ‘Garden Center’ to purchase tree, vegetable, or flower seeds for planting. Sell your crops for coins, save them for food, or send as gifts to friends.
