Full Answer

There are several ways to redeem Xbox promotional codes, some of which do not require you to enter any information manually. If your Xbox has a Kinect attached to it, you can use Kinect to read the code. Call out to the Xbox Kinect by saying the exact phrase, "Xbox, Use a code." The Kinect activates the area to search for a code. Hold the QR code you received, either from printing out the promo code received or holding up a card purchased in a store, up to the Kinect camera. You must be closer than 6 feet for the Kinect to read it.

If your promo code does not have a QR code, you can use different apps and websites to convert your promo code into a QR code, which you can then print out and have read by the Kinect. The Smart Glass app helps you enter codes without having to type from the controller, by acting as a remote keyboard.
