- "Use Coins to buy Boosts to enhance your game play."
- — Main Menu description from Bejeweled Blitz.
Boosts are special power-ups that appear in Bejeweled Blitz. It is unlocked with a bonus 20,000 coins for the player to spend on any of it after the player beats a PopCap friend's score when playing Bejeweled Blitz for the first time. Using up a boost for the first time will unlock the Weekly Leaderboard.
Boosts can be accessed by clicking the 'Boost' button on the Main Menu, or, after a game, the Boost Selector will be at the top of the screen on the Stats screen.
Each Boost has a price that must be paid with coins if the player wants to buy one or some Boosts, and if the player cannot afford it, the game will not let the player buy it.
The player can buy up to three Boosts and each Boost bought will last three games. A restart in the middle of a game with a Boost active will consume one of its games.
