this is how if anyone else has the unable to redeem issue.
use the windows xbox app and go to messages. do not redeem on console or webpage but rather click the "redeem code" button under the messages then search the store for fallout 3 and view game hub. then click install.
after many attempts this has been the only way to get mine to acccept and is now finally installing
