Hmm you should be able to figure that out yourself
Nope. Can't understand why someone who just started this game would be agonizing to the point of torture about not getting this promo. Feel free to dispel my confusion by telling me you're sitting 5+ MM MR and you need to get 1k by year end.

1. A fine legal mind such as yours should be able to discern what is written literally versus colloquially.
2. As has been said many times here, post count is not an indication of expertise. Example of this: your post just now, no wonder you have 20K+
3. I in fact am sitting on several 100K of MR, not MM, but still enough that I can get a ton of value out of this vs. my relatively meager stash of AA and UA miles.

Read the T&C of this Promo. #Frightening
Quote
Use of the offer by travel agents or to procure tickets for any subsequent sale or attempted sale is expressly prohibited.  You represent that all information that you provide to the American Express Travel representative is true and accurate in all respects, that you intend to use the ticket to fly to the applicable destination associated with the ticket and that you will not seek a refund or credit from the airline.  American Express may audit use of the offer to determine whether there has been any fraud, misrepresentation, abuse or violation of the terms and conditions associated with the offer.  If American Express determines that an audit reveals discrepancies or possible violations of the terms and conditions or misuse of the offer, American Express may take actions that include, without limitation, delay of booking of any ticket, cancellation of any outstanding booking request(s) and removal of your eligibility for the offer.  For the avoidance of doubt, American Express reserves the right not to book an itinerary for any reason, including but not limited to if the total number of miles you indicate are required for the airline ticket(s) under the applicable airline’s loyalty program does not conform to the applicable airline’s publicly available award mileage table.  Redemption of the offer will be facilitated through a charge of the airline ticket(s) to your Membership Rewards program-enrolled American Express Card.  A credit will be issued to the American Express Card account used in an amount that corresponds to the charge for the amount of the purchase of the airline ticket(s), less the amount of the applicable taxes and fees that you indicated apply to the award ticket under the applicable airline’s loyalty program.  Points will be debited from your Membership Rewards account.  If a charge for a purchase is included in a Pay Over Time feature balance on your American Express Card account (for example, the Extended Payment Option), the statement credit associated with that charge may not be applied to that Pay Over Time feature balance. Instead the statement credit may be applied to your Pay in Full balance. If you believe this has occurred, please contact us by calling the number on the back of your card.  If you seek a refund or credit from the airline or American Express for a ticket, American Express reserves the right to reverse certain aspects of the original booking of the applicable ticket(s) by: (i) crediting the number of points to your Membership Rewards program account that were originally deducted when the applicable ticket was booked, and (ii) reversing the credit that American Express originally applied to your American Express Card when the applicable ticket was booked.  American Express’s reversal of these aspects of the original booking will result in the original charge associated with the applicable ticket(s) remaining on your American Express Card without a statement credit from American Express.  Accordingly, if the airline did not refund the cost of the ticket(s) to your American Express Card, then you are responsible for paying the original charge on your American Express Card statement associated with the applicable ticket(s).

Do you have to have an amex platinum business to technically be eligible for this promo, or just an amex open business card?

Email?

Received it today @ 11:03 AM EST.

In the email title it says "Reminder ..........., here's to you! We'd Like To Thank You: A special offer for air travel"

Although it says "Reminder" which makes it sound like i received it already before, i couldn't find it yet in any of my email addresses.
(Will try to research a little further, will also try to post a screenshot later)

On a side note, the account that received it, is a Business Gold Card with spends of around 500k/M. (Have a platinum too)

Your "extensive experience" with this game, despite your post count, is belied by posts like this:

I can't stand hearing that one new person got it and the rest of us are drooling over this but can't get it... torture

Comes across as a whiny, petulant, over-entitled n00b.  Oh, IMO.

You'd never see a post like that come from anyone who has been around, sorry.

I understand that. Was wondering what Hershelsdeals meant by 3x with gold card. Amex charges your card for the tickets and then credits you. Can you chose which card they charge, or is it only the targeted card.

-1.

The credit does not offset the original charge. I can prove it on the statement.

so youre probably getting 2x the points then because the credit claws back 1x/3x the points?

The credit comes through as a customer service adjustment, and does not offset any points

Say all you spent on one statement is $10K on these tickets.

You're saying you got a $10k credit and still got 10K MR? I'd be very surprised.

I believe you; just very surprised the offsetting credit doesn't work like a return.
