Hi friend! Here‘s how to get Just Dance Unlimited free on your Nintendo Switch

Want endless on-demand access to all your favorite Just Dance songs? I‘ve got you covered!

As a fellow Just Dance superfan, I‘m going to walk you through the ins and outs of scoring free Just Dance Unlimited for Nintendo Switch.

What is Just Dance Unlimited?

Just Dance Unlimited is a subscription streaming service that unlocks over 700 songs from past Just Dance games. It‘s different than buying individual Just Dance editions each year.

With Unlimited, you get an ever-growing, on-demand catalog of hits to dance to!

Here‘s a quick rundown of what you get:

  • 700+ songs – All previous Just Dance hits plus new additions
  • On-demand streaming – No need to switch discs or games
  • New monthly content – Fresh songs added every month
  • Personalized playlists – Customize your own playlists
  • Access across platforms – Play on Switch, Xbox, PlayStation, and Stadia
  • Family sharing – Up to 6 profiles per console

It‘s like the Netflix or Spotify of Just Dance – tons of great music and routinely refreshed content.

Now let‘s get into how you can get in on all that Unlimited goodness for free!

Method 1: Use the free 1-month trial

The easiest way to try Just Dance Unlimited is to use the free 1-month trial that comes with every new copy of Just Dance.

It works like this:

  1. Buy a physical or digital copy of the latest Just Dance game – I recommend Just Dance 2023 as it just came out.

  2. Open the case or check the eShop details – you‘ll find a one-time code for a 1-month Just Dance Unlimited trial.

  3. Redeem the code on the Nintendo eShop.

  4. Download the Just Dance Unlimited app on your Switch.

  5. You now have full access to the entire Just Dance Unlimited library for 1 month!

This trial is a great way to take the service for a spin and see if you dig it. Be sure to cancel before the month is up if you don‘t want to continue the paid subscription.

Hot tip: Connect to the internet when you first launch Just Dance 2023 and it will prompt you to activate the free trial straight away!

Method 2: Grab promo codes and free trial giveaways

Another stellar option is to keep your eyes peeled for Just Dance Unlimited promo codes online.

You can often find deals for free 1-month trials or juicy discounts. Here are the best places to look:

  • Ubisoft promotions – Check the Just Dance website and Ubisoft store for special offers. They also hand out codes during giveaways on social media.

  • Retailer deals – Stores like Amazon, Best Buy, or GameStop may include free trial promo codes when you buy Just Dance.

  • Gaming news sites – I like to check Nintendo Life and Wario64 on Twitter for Unlimited deals.

  • Just Dance online forums – Kind souls will sometimes share spare codes on Reddit and fan sites.

  • Contests and surveys – Ubisoft runs these all the time, so enter for a chance to win freebies!

It takes a bit of digging, but promo codes are out there. Here are the sites I recommend bookmarking:

Using promo codes takes more effort but pays off when you score that free Unlimited!

Method 3: Game share with a friend

Got a buddy who owns Just Dance Unlimited on their Switch? Game sharing allows you to "borrow" their subscription!

Here‘s how game sharing works:

  • You and a friend link your Nintendo Accounts on each other‘s Switch consoles.

  • This lets you share access to digital purchases, like Just Dance Unlimited.

  • You can both play Unlimited simultaneously as long as you‘re online.

  • Only works with one other console at a time.

Obviously you need a generous friend for this method. But if game sharing is already set up between you, it‘s an easy way to grab their Unlimited access!

Method 4: Wait for free Unlimited weekends

A few times per year, Ubisoft will unlock Just Dance Unlimited for everyone during free access weekends.

  • They usually do this around new Just Dance game releases.

  • It lets anyone play Unlimited free for ~3 days (Friday to Sunday).

  • All you need is a copy of the latest Just Dance.

Definitely take advantage of these weekends when they pop up! It‘s up to 72 hours of unlimited (hehe) Just Dance action.

Follow Just Dance on social media and turn on notifications so you‘re in the know on freebie events.

Method 5: Sign up for Ubisoft+

If you want Unlimited bundled with tons of other games, check out Ubisoft+.

The basics:

  • It‘s Ubisoft‘s Netflix-style game subscription service.

  • $14.99 per month for access to 100+ Ubisoft games.

  • Includes all the big names like Assassin‘s Creed, Far Cry, Watch Dogs, and of course Just Dance.

  • Play Unlimited as long as your Ubisoft+ subscription is active.

  • Available on both Switch and PC.

While it‘s not free, you get Unlimited plus a huge library for under $15 a month. Great value if you want to play other Ubisoft titles too.

Method 6: Use discounts and vouchers

Okay, this still costs money, but you can use vouchers to lower the price of Just Dance Unlimited:

  • Gold Points – Convert your My Nintendo points towards purchasing discounted Unlimited plans.

  • Gift cards – Any unused Nintendo eShop or retailer gift cards can offset the real-world cost.

  • Third-party sellers – Sites like CDKeys sell 12-month Unlimited codes at a discounted price.

  • Ubisoft coupons – Check their promo page for sitewide sales and Unlimited deals.

Stacking discounts andpromo codes helps soften the blow to your wallet. Holidays like Black Friday are a great time to find bargains.

Method 7: Cancel and resubscribe

If you‘ve been an Unlimited subscriber in the past, try canceling and resubscribing later on.

  • When you resubscribe down the road, Ubisoft may offer you sweet promotions as a returning member.

  • After canceling, wait a few months and see if they send any special offers to entice you back.

The key is making sure to fully cancel your subscription and avoid auto-renewal. This frees you up to freely subscribe and unsubscribe to catch new customer deals.

Method 8: Play contests and earn rewards

Ubisoft is always running Just Dance contests and promotions. Get involved for chances to win freebies!

  • Check their website for active contests – there‘s usually something.

  • Participate in official Just Dance surveys – provide your feedback for prizes.

  • Enter dance crew challenges and show off your moves to win big. Prizes include Unlimited, cash, and swag.

  • Refer friends for rewards and get entered into drawings when they sign up.

It takes some effort but contests and surveys are fun ways to win free Unlimited access. Get involved with the Just Dance community!

Now that you know how to get Just Dance Unlimited for free, here are my pro tips for making the most of it:

  • When trying out free trials, turn off auto-renewal at least 48 hours before they expire to avoid surprise charges.

  • Download your favorite songs to play offline – just in case you lose internet when the trial ends.

  • Take full advantage of family sharing – up to 6 profiles on a single Switch can use free trials.

  • Follow Just Dance social media and turn on notifications so you never miss a promo.

  • With friend passes, play online together to make the most of the 1 month trial.

  • Game sharing requires an internet connection at all times to verify the shared Unlimited access.

  • Check back every few months for new deals timed with big Just Dance releases.

Free trials are awesome, but is Unlimited worth paying for? Let‘s weigh the pros and cons:


  • 700+ songs – Way more variety and value than any single Just Dance game.
  • Constant new content – Keeps the song list fresh with monthly additions.
  • Endless dance parties – It‘s like having a personal JDUKE box!
  • Access across platforms – Play on Switch, Xbox, PlayStation, PC, and Stadia.
  • Family sharing – Up to 6 profiles on one console can use it.


  • Requires paid subscription – No more free rides after the trials run out!
  • No individual song purchases – Monthly fee unavoidable if you want full access.
  • Online connection required – You need internet to stream the catalog.

Overall, Just Dance Unlimited is an amazing addition for diehard fans who want endless songs. If you plan to play Just Dance for years, it‘s 100% worth the subscription cost.

But more casual players who only want certain songs don‘t necessarily need the full Unlimited package.

However, it never hurts to grab those free trials when you can! At the very least, you get to experience the huge diversity of songs.

Phew, we covered a ton of ground! Here‘s a quick recap of how to get Just Dance Unlimited for free:

  • Use the 1-month free trial included with new Just Dance copies

  • Find and redeem promo codes and gift card offers

  • Ask friends to share their Friend Passes with you

  • Take advantage of occasional free access weekends

  • Sign up for Ubisoft+ if you want more included

  • Use discounts and sales to lower the standard subscription cost

With some creativity and planning, you can enjoy all the benefits of Unlimited without overspending.

I hope these tips help you land those free trials and discounts, my friend. Just get your Switch ready – there‘s a world of dance madness waiting for you on Just Dance Unlimited!
