I think you may have been lucky on this as the Big D (Sale fares) are normally cannot be upgraded either with cash or miles. Same applies to P booking class (which is an upgrade from WT).

I thought OP was referring to using a promo code to get discount (i.e. on normal or non-big D sale fare) then using miles to upgrade.
