Now, you may be wondering what happens if you purchased V-Bucks within the last couple of days or weeks. Have you just been scammed by Peely?
No! Thankfully Epic has confirmed the following in their blog post:
"Players that purchased V-Bucks or purchased a real-money offer like Summer Legends in the last 30 days (July 14, 2020 - August 13, 2020) will be granted a V-Bucks bonus by August 17! The V-Bucks bonus will be 20% of the total purchase amount during that time frame."
