Is the $5 BTC promo a scam?

As the title says. I’d been meaning to get into crypto and I decided to start with coinbase because of this small perk. Well, it’s been a month, I’ve been verified both by site check marks and by customer support. However, when I ask why I haven’t gotten the free btc, they literally just copy the same canned response of “if you haven’t received it you aren’t verified or your account is fake” and nothing else regardless of my reply. They also ignore questions about not being able to stake (no button) but I’ve seen others post it, so I feel like something may be wrong with my account and they’re too lazy to fix anything.

I know $5 isn’t much, but false advertising isn’t ok.

What do you think?
