Just to add a bit of background:

if you're talking about a concrete amount, mille is more common than milliers.

Il y avait des milliers de personnes. -- There were thousands of people.
Il y avait deux mille personnes. -- There were two thousand people.

Both “deux mille euros” and “deux milliers d’euros” are grammatically correct. If you think it has been wrongly marked in a quiz better to use report button as your answer and the question can both be checked.
