Is there any way to enter those crazy 25-character alphanumeric Xbox Live redeem codes online instead of via Xbox 360 controller?

I have my XBL account linked with a Microsoft Passport account, if that helps....

Yes, you can login to and redeem the code there. XBL Marketplace. Click the "Redeem Code" link under "My Account".

If you have a USB keyboard around you can also plug that into your 360 and type that way. – YuriPup Oct 19 '10 at 15:42 seems to be the current place to go.

Sometimes the website tells you that you have to redeem a code on the console (this might be the case for all points codes from now on). If you have to do so, you can make the process a bit less painful by plugging in a standard USB keyboard.
