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

realize this post is kind of old, but I just had the same problem.

Went to online chat with HTC and they fixed it up for me in a few minutes.
I said nothing about boot loader, just put "problems with google drive promotion" in the chat subject.

What was strange was that they guy asked me:

"Thanks for that information. Our system indicates that you requested to unlock the bootloader of the phone. Is this correct?"

I played dumb from then out because I never requested this via the HTC dev site.

He sent me a promo code via e-mail directly.
