As a long-time Just Dance fanatic myself, I‘ve uncovered all the insider tricks for scoring that sweet free Unlimited access. I know how expensive buying all the latest tracks can get, but it doesn‘t have to be that way.
In this detailed guide, I‘ll walk you through the various options – from making the most of free trials to sneaky code hacks. Arm yourself with these tips, and you‘ll be dancing like Beyoncé on a budget in no time!
What is Just Dance Unlimited?
Let‘s start with a quick overview for those new to the world of Just Dance.
Just Dance Unlimited is a premium, on-demand streaming service for the main Just Dance console games. It‘s essentially like Netflix, but for dance tracks!
Through Unlimited, you gain access to a huge library of over 700 songs from past Just Dance installments and new exclusive jams. We‘re talking all the chart-toppers, old-school throwbacks, K-Pop hits and more – every genre is covered.
It‘s the ultimate non-stop dance party, with fresh tracks added all the time so the music never gets stale.
According to Ubisoft, Just Dance‘s publisher, Unlimited members have collectively racked up over 2 billion hours of playtime. Now that‘s a lot of dancing!
Normally, this much musical goodness doesn‘t come cheap. Here‘s the standard Unlimited subscription pricing:
|1 month||$3.99 / £3.29|
|3 months||$9.99 / £7.99|
|12 months||$24.99 / £19.99|
But don‘t stress, you clever friend! Keep on reading and I‘ll share all my best tricks for gaining Unlimited access completely free.
Making the Most of the 1 Month Free Trial
The easiest free ticket to Unlimited is taking advantage of the free 1 month trial included with all new purchases of the latest Just Dance game.
Every physical and digital copy comes with a one-time code that unlocks the complete Unlimited catalogue for a full month. Sweet!
Here‘s a simple step-by-step to activate it seamlessly:
Step 1: Ensure your console is hooked up online – the trial code gets you streaming access to all those sweet tracks!
Step 2: Link up your Ubisoft account if you haven‘t already. This connects your game progress across platforms.
Step 3: Pop in the Just Dance 2022/2023 disc or download. Then launch the game!
Step 4: You should see a notification prompting you to unlock your free trial. Select "Unlock Now" and it‘ll instantly activate. Yay!
If the prompt doesn‘t show, no stress! Just go ahead and select any Unlimited track to play. The activation offer will pop up then.
Step 5: To access Unlimited, head to the "Just Dance Unlimited" tile on the mode select menu. Then the entire music library is yours for 30 days of free jiving!
Now you‘ve got Unlimited in your grasp, let‘s make sure you maximize this free month:
Download your fave tracks to bust moves offline – streaming eats data!
Play and favorite songs to get your personalized shuffle recommendations dialed in.
Smash out as many tracks as possible to get value for money. Marathon dance sessions for the win!
Try out new genres and playlists to expand your music tastes.
Squad up with friends and family for group dance-offs while it lasts!
Before you know it, the month will be over and that subscription prompt will pop up again. But take advantage of this initial freebie period, and you‘ll at least get a good chunk of Unlimited tracks under your belt.
Okay, so you‘ve done the trial, unlocked some rad tunes, but now you‘re itching for more free Unlimited playtime. Read on…
Joining Special Just Dance Happy Hour Events
Fortunately, the Just Dance gods occasionally bless us with "Happy Hours" – limited time events that unlock free and unlimited access to the full library!
These are usually scheduled every couple months to align with big gaming conventions, holidays, or Just Dance milestones.
Some previous Happy Hour dates include:
June 11, 2022: Just Dance‘s 14th birthday! 🥳
July 14, 2022: Bastille Day celebrations
October 29, 2022: Fright Night for Halloween 🎃
December 24-26, 2022: Festive season access
During these short windows, all songs become available including Unlimited exclusives. No trial or subscription required!
The events typically run for 3 to 5 hours in duration. So while it‘s limited, you can cram in tons of free dancing while it lasts.
Be sure to watch out for Happy Hour date announcements on:
Just Dance social media – Facebook, Instagram, Twitter
The official website and forums
Gaming news sites like IGN, GameSpot and Polygon
Then to take advantage of the unlocked library during a Happy Hour:
Boot up your Just Dance 2022/23 game
Head to the "Just Dance Unlimited" menu tile
You‘ll now have unlimited plays of every song for a limited time!
Set reminders so you‘re ready to maximize these sweet free access periods. Bring some pals over, stock up on energy drinks and pull an all-nighter dancing session until the event ends!
Finding and Claiming Free Codes
Now this is the real cheat code – free unlock codes for Unlimited access!
Codes for 1 month trials or longer subscriptions are sometimes given away through:
Just Dance contests and giveaways – Follow their social channels for competitions with codes as prizes!
Retailer promotions – Sites like Amazon and GameStop run free code offers.
Gaming forums and groups – Kind strangers share their spare codes.
Live streams – Twitch streamers hand out codes during broadcasts as incentives.
Ubisoft Forward – Digital goodie bags often contain Just Dance perks!
I can‘t give away any specific codes here of course. But keep a close watch on the channels above and you might just score a free ticket!
When you get your hands on a code, redeeming is easy peasy:
Launch Just Dance 2022/23
Access your player Profile Card from the menu
Select "Settings" then "Redeem Code"
Carefully enter the code and hit Confirm
Then boom! Free Unlimited unlocked for the code‘s duration – 1 month, 3 months or whatever it may be. Time to dance like no one‘s watching!
With so many giveaways and offers, Unlimited codes are out there. Set those Google Alerts, and be ready to punch them in fast before others steal ‘em!
Busting Just Dance Mobile Moves
Okay, say you don‘t have a Just Dance console game. Not to worry, you can still access some Unlimited tunes 100% free with…Just Dance Now!
Just Dance Now is the mobile app version, playable on iOS and Android devices. It uses your phone or tablet‘s motion sensors so you don‘t need any extra gear.
Over 100 top hits from Unlimited are fully playable in Just Dance Now for $0. Songs like:
- "Starships" by Nicki Minaj
- "California Gurls" by Katy Perry
- "Animals" by Martin Garrix
- "The Way" by Ariana Grande
New free tracks are added every week too, so the library keeps growing.
There are 500+ additional songs accessible through a paid Just Dance NowPass. But 100+ freebies are plenty to get your groove on from home or on the go!
While it doesn‘t have the full 700 song Unlimited catalogue, Just Dance Now lets you stream a decent selection completely free.
So if you don‘t have a console, Just Dance Now on mobile is a great free alternative for tapping into Unlimited goodness!
Just Dance Unlimited vs. Just Dance Now
Given they both provide on-demand streaming access to Just Dance tracks, what exactly is the difference between Unlimited and Now?
Here‘s a quick comparison:
|Just Dance Unlimited||Just Dance Now|
|Platform||Console (PS, Xbox, Nintendo)||Mobile (iOS, Android)|
|Song Catalogue||700+ songs||100+ free, 500+ paid|
|Subscription||Comes with latest JD console game||Separate paid monthly subscription|
|Co-Op / Scoring||Yes||Solo play only|
So in summary:
🎮 Unlimited requires a console and latest Just Dance game
📱 Now is a standalone mobile app
🎵 Unlimited has WAY bigger catalogue
💃 Now has selection of free songs
👯♂️ Unlimited enables co-op dance
🕺 Now is solo play only
Just Dance Now is great for a free taster of Unlimited gameplay and tracks. But the full experience is only available through Unlimited and the console editions.
That said, Now‘s free song selection still provides plenty of boogie time! Bust out those phone moves anytime, anywhere.
