In Plants vs Zombies 1, you used coins to purchase new plants, upgrades and the like, whereas Plants vs Zombies 2 appears to only use real money in its store. Instead, as far as I can tell by going through the first bit of the game, coins are only used for Plant Food and Power-Ups.

Are coins used for anything else during the rest of the game, or can I safely use my coins on Plant Food and Power-Ups instead of hoarding them?


Per the official Support page (click on the "How do I get more coins?" question):

You'll use the Coins to purchase extra Plant Food and Power Ups!

That's all they are used for.

    I hoarded the coins until I hit a wall on gaining stars then I used the coins liberally to pass the frustrating levels. It mainly to decapitate zombies. – Sun Sep 9 '13 at 4:10
  • In addition to that (guess that didn't exist at the time this answer was wrote) you can use coins to retry failed Piñata Parties. – Alex Jun 25 '15 at 11:34
