Unlocking Fresh faster
Press on the kid with the hood. While selected go over to Fresh or any of the other characters and press the box where the fraction of the amount you have for that character is. To play as someone like Spike after Fresh you'll have to do it while the selected hood kid is taken as well.
Two character tokens
Just use your coins to buy mystery boxes - they contain character tokens and coins. Or if you run in between 2 trains then you will flip back and hit the screen and so will the cop and his dog.

Power-ups that you can pick up while playing are:
- Jetpack which allows you to fly over all of the trains and collect a trail of coins along the way.
- Super Sneakers will make your character run faster than normal, and will pick up any coins under them.
- Coin Magnet will collect all of the coins in the vicinity around you.
- 2X Multiplier will double your score while it is active.
All of these power-ups only last a limited time, so make sure you take advantage of them while they’re active. For more information on Power-ups, use our guide to Subway Surfer Power-ups.
Bump Into Barriers
Jump early or jump late and you'll bump into the red and white barriers without being caught by the inspector and his dog.
A cool way to make extra coins is by having your friends run so you can earn additional money. For each 50 friend runs, you will earn a coin bag with valuable coins inside.
If you trigger the Mega Headstart as soon as your mission starts you will immediately be launched into the sky and get an easy 10000+ points without having to jump or roll.
When you have bouncy shoes and you're in the air you can wipe twice and when you come back down you will jump twice.
Collecting coins easily
You just need to go to the boosts and then click on the mystery box option and click. You will see coins like 5,000, 200, 500, etc, but if you're lucky you will get 100,000 coins.
