Get what you need without buying
Write down the reward you get for completing each collection. Then when you need something like seakers, compasses, or energy go to your list. If you are able to complete the collection again you can get what you need without buying it.
Be a good friend
If your friend sends you something on your list and you do not send them something back, chances are they will stop sending you gifts. Make sure you pay attention to who sends you the gifts you have to say thank you to. These are the people sending you gifts on your wish list. Be a good friend and they will send you gifts everyday. Also visiting friends and helping them will give you fireflies, ladybugs, etc. and will give you a lot of experience points to help you reach the next level more quickly.
In the Valentine update one of the tasks was to collect 400 Valentine's cards from your friends. Just remember that you need to GIVE BACK TOO - people do track their friends and if you don't visit, they probably won't either!
Price Discrepancies - Shop Around!
You can sometimes buy combining items needed to complete a collection for less diamonds/crystals at the collection than at the shop. If you need a combining item just click on the group of 4 combining items at the collection and then you will see the costs. The following are cheaper at these collections than at the shop:
At the "Hearts" and "Varicolored Sticky Notes" collections:
- rose 12 (2 less than shop)
- candle 12 (4 less than shop)
- washer 20 (2 less than shop)
- split washer 20 (4 less than shop)
There used to be a similar discrepancy with some Christmas items, but they are no longer sold at the shop, just at the collection. Based on this, future updates with new combining items might have this glitch too, so keep an eye out for that.
BUYING CHESTS - You would generally presume that buying a bundle within a chest is cheaper, but that Is not always the case. As an example buying the Clockmakers Chest is actually more expensive than buying the components separately in groups of ten!!
THE LESSON BEING - BEFORE YOU PART WITH YOUR HARD EARNED (OR BOUGHT!) CRYSTALS, CHECK PRICES IN BOTH THE SHOP AND AT THE COLLECTION, AND ALSO BUNDLES VERSUS BUYING ITEMS INDIVIDUALLY.
I've noticed this feature: if you have accidentally found some item before it appeared in your quests and you are able to combine a collection with this item already - do it! It will sort of "verify" that you had this item and the quest will be completed. And don't worry about the 6th step of each quest-group, which is "combining a collection" - this one somehow solves itself right when it appears, if you have at any point combined this collection.
EDIT: Use this tip with caution if you do not have extras of the remaining items as you may struggle to obtain those! This tip is best used when it is the last item in a collection.
Order of picture levels
Below is the list of levels for each picture from lowest level to highest level as of the Treasure Island update (Sept. 2014). Each level is listed as: Level (frame colour*; rate of completion % for each play at level; amount of special items needed to play picture at level**).
*Frame decoration is as seen on iPad1 1st gen, and appearance may vary with device game is played on.
**Some levels require special items to play e.g. fireflies for night garden, ladybugs for mill, and holiday pictures may have their own special item requirements during holiday events.
- Novice (green-yellow; +20% per play; 5 special items)
- Trainee (plain brown; +10% per play; 10 special items)
- Detective (decorative copper-brown; ~7% per play; 15 special items)
- Pro (silver; ~4% per play; 20 special items)
- High Seeker (gold; +1% per play; 25 special items)
- Academician (bright purple-pink; +1% per 2 plays; 30 special items)
- Magister (bright green; +1% per 4 plays; 35 special items)
- Professor (baby blue; +1% per 6 plays; 40 special items
As a guide, if a special task requires getting to 'Academic level' (Academician; purple-pink frame) on a new picture this will require approximately 155 plays and approximately 3,350 special items if they are needed for that picture (e.g. cupids arrows for Tree of Dates, Christmas baubles for Christmas Eve, pumpkin lanterns for Witch's Hut).
To get to 100% Professor level from the point of opening a new picture (0% Novice level) will take approximately 1,355 plays and approximately 47,350 special items if they are needed for that picture. However, this is not the maximum amount you can play a single picture. Once you reach 100% Professor the counter will continue to increase the more you play the picture to 101%, 102% etc. indefinitely.

Plugging in phone extends talisman times
*Not tested, just something I noticed* I am playing on a Samsung Galaxy S4 phone (Android Jellybean OS - before upgrade to KitKat). At night before going to sleep, I would leave my game on the screen and push the button to put my phone to sleep. I would immediately plug it in to charge for the night. In the morning when I got up and went to play, my talismans would still be counting down time from where I left them the night before (ie. if I had 45 minutes left on an Ancient Scroll, I would still have 45 minutes left the next morning). I would still get all my other timed events like charged awards so this didn't seem to affect anything except the talismans.
This did not work if my phone was already plugged in while I was playing. I have not tried this since updating to KitKat.I do not know if this works on any other Android devices.
Poker combination / tool case
There's a bug in the poker combination collection. instead of a tool case and 8000 coins you only get 4 torches and a watch hand. Bummer
