now I feel cheated

strangely, my wife was eligible and I still have her account registered in Europe ... and that usually means she is not eligible for any offers.

Confusing offer
It would be the latter; promotional miles are awarded as X times the fare -- 3X, in this case.

Removed previous post content. Seems multipliers vary based on targeted offer.

Mod, can you update thread title to remove 3x?

I’m a 1k and I’m eligible to receive 7x miles in this promotion. So, 18x miles (11+7) on any trip between now and August 31, 2020.

This promotion is the first I’ve been eligible for in quite a while.

I registered for this promo. In my case it indicates that I will get 7X bonus miles.
I presume that this means that I will get 7X instead of the 6X bonus miles I get as a 1K.

From the terms and conditions:
3. For Qualifying Trips (defined below), promotional bonus award miles will be credited at 7 times the fare.
*

The math looks like 5 base + 7 bonus = 12

Should be 18x - 11x as 1K member + (targeted) 7x from this offer

7x as a MM *G.

Terms seem clear:

“With this offer, you can earn bonus miles equal to 7x the fare on qualifying flights*, up to 50,000 miles. That's on top of the miles you already earn as a MileagePlus® member. Plus, there are no change fees when you book with us through July 31, 2020.”
