Facebook Games: How to Earn Money on Petville
The Fur will be Flying!
Petville, one of the more recent additions to the Zynga family, has two different pet-currencies, or forms of money, like most other Zynga games. Pet Coins and Pet Cash allow you to buy adorable outfits for your pet, big screen tv's for your pet's house, and even a sweet set of wheels!
Here are the oodles of ways you can earn Pet Coins and Pet Cash. With these tricks and tips, your pet will be living in the lap of luxury!
Earn Coins by Feeding your Pet
Just like in real life, your Petville Pet also gets hungry and needs to be fed. When you start Petville, you're given a food bowl. When your pet gets hungry, you have to pay for food to be put into the bowl. How does this make you money? Well once the time elapses and the food bowl is empty, you'll receive a special bonus jewel, worth an amount specific to the type of food you purchased!
This is a great way to earn money, but if you're not careful, it could end up costing you. If you wait too long after the food bowl is empty, your pet may run away! If this happens, the pound charges a hefty percentage of your coins to your pet back. Ridiculous, I know, but you shouldn't need to worry about it as long as you feed your pet and keep them happy.
Earn Coins by Washing your Pet
Your pet gets dirty from playing all day in Petville. You'll notice that when your pet needs a bath, their hygiene bar is low, you can see the bar on the picture to the left, the one with the pink sponge next to it.
To give your pet a bath, you need to drag the pink sponge out of your storage box and drag it over your pet. As you clean your pet, you'll earn Petcoins!
Not only can you bathe your own pet, but you can visit and bathe your friends' pets for Petcoins! The amount you receive when you're cleaning your pet and friends' pets will increases when you level up!
Earn Petcoins by Cleaning your House
All pets on Petville are messy. When you pick up after your pet and your friends' pets, you'll earn Petcoins for each piece of garbage you pick up. Every piece of garbage gives you a particular amount of Petcoins. Here is a rundown of what to look for and how much you'll earn from each item.
- Socks: 3 Petcoins
- Apple Cores: 3 Petcoins
- Banana Peels: 5 Petcoins
- Pink Rags: 5 Petcoins
- T-shirts: 10 Petcoins
- Pizza Slice: 10 Petcoins
- Blue Shorts: 20 Petcoins
- Cookie: 20 Petcoins
- Crumbled Paper: 50 Petcoins
- Spilled Coffee: 50 Petcoins
Choose Bouquets for your Flower Pots
You receive 4 flowerpots from each of the 4 standard rooms you receive in the Petville. Filling your pots with flowers is very similar to how you feed your pet. To choose a bouquet, click the empty flower pot and select a one of the types of flowers. You will instantly receive the amount shown for the flower you've chosen. You can change the flowers in your pot only after they have wilted.
Earning Petcoins by Playing with Friends
You can earn 50 Petcoins by playing with each one of your friends' pets. When you arrive at their home, a window will automatically pop-up, allowing you to choose from a variety of different activities. Each activity pays out the same amount so don't worry about which activity you should choose.
You can play with friends' pets more than once a day, but the second time to play with the same pet, you'll only earn 5 Petcoins instead of 50.
This is a newer feature to Petville. Every week, new challanges are issued, ranging from feeding your pet a certain kind of food to picking up a certain number of socks.
When you complete a challenge, you'll receive a Petcoin award. These awards range from 1000 to 2000 Petcoins, a nice boost to your pet's bank account!
Adopt Toys from the Feed
On your Facebook Home page, you'll receive updates from friends about what's going on with them. If you have friends who play petville, you'll likely to see the occasional "Adopt this Toy" post (these happen when you find a brown chest while you're visiting other friends' houses).
Once you've found one of these feeds on your Home page, adopt the toy, and it will be added to your storage box! You can then choose to put the toy in your home somewhere, or you could sell it for Petcoins.
You can adopt as many toys from the feed as you want, there's no maximum amount. Try to be quick about adopting toys when you see them because someone could beat you to that toy!
