So I guess I am screwed now and i can't get this offer anymore because the bootloader is unlocked right? or is there anyway to get it back to stock to redeem it?

Here is the info google gives about this :

**If I purchased a used/refurbished HTC device or unlocked the bootloader on my device, can I redeem the offer?

No. The offer is only available to original buyer of a device over its lifetime. Users who unlock the bootloader on their device are not eligible to receive this offer.**
I can verify that it works if you go into Google drive before unlocking the bootloader
