Buy-up Offers and EQM/EQD

I'm flying RDU-CLT-MBJ later this month. Just checked the reservation in the app and saw an offer to "Move to Business for $65." If I move to business for $65/pp, will I get extra EQM/RDM, or will it be the same as the economy EQM since I bought-up to Business instead of paying full-fare?
Thanks!

no you will not.
Its an offer from AA to move to J for a small fee, you will earn according to the cabin you are ticketed in.

No, this is a TOD upgrade, according to the T&C's posted in the below thread you should earn based on the business cabin you upgrade into. I would certainly double check though.

AA moving to TOD “tens of dollars” for First Class & Upgrades?

I have a somewhat related question. If i take a flight under 500 miles (saly LGA-PHL), and book it into a business/first fare code (EG I or D), and the plane has first class seating, will i get 1,000 EQM for the segment? I think the answer is yes but need to be certain as i am cutting the EQMs razor close this year.
