If I understand this correctly, I would earn 8 * 693.00 for a total of 5,544 miles in my account, right? Or will I still get the 10,502 BIS miles plus the dollar multiplier? I am reading it to mean I will only get 5,544 miles in my account. If so, that is really, really bad.

Yep 693*8=5544.

It sucks. I found a great ticket to Sao Paulo - $680 R/T on UA, just after they changed. I am Gold on UA and I got 4200 miles, whereas on a previous trip I got 24000.
