I didn't try upgrade the outbound (it was already booked in Q so 100% points and I figured the flight would be overbooked anyhow). It was an open-jaw ticket, purchased on travelocity rather than SK website, though I don't see that this would matter.

For me, this pretty much makes optiontown useless, since I'd rather spend the money on making sure of 100% points than on getting the upgrade+25% points.

Same happened to me once, and I just emailed OTs customer service and received points for the upgraded class a few weeks later. This was on a UA codeshare, which I think messed up some things.
