So I didn't change and decided to stick to my original booking. Looking at the terms and conditions of the promotional booking, I found this in relevance:
8. Change of date is allowed within the ticket promotion validity period. For the unutilised redemption ticket, change of date/sector is allowed within the ticket promotion validity period. For the partly utilised ticket, only change of flight/date is allowed within the ticket promotion validity period. All changes are subject to a USD50 reissuance fee. Additional taxes may apply.

It does mention about the promotion validity period which I am assuming would refer to the travel period (until 30 June 2014)not the booking period.
The promotional booking period was only between 1st - 8th Dec.

Does anybody else thinks of the same or am I misunderstanding it?
Unfortunately I had the same issue but it really is only possible within the promotional booking period. Therefore if you want to change now you would have to top up the miles.
