Using vouchers lowers upgrade chances?

Using a "same as cash" voucher, the paid price printed out on the e-receipt gives the price after the voucher. Therefore under the new fare-based-within-category rule, I am now lower on the upgrade list?
Doubt if this will be a najor problem for me (Plat), but spouse is Silver, and this could definitely hurt.
So question: is this fair? (pun unintended).

Should be the alphabet soup code, not the price paid that determines priority, that's if you believe everything CO tells ya.

Duh. Thanks, snake, that makes sense (did I really say that, referring to CO?). Of course I don't have any proof that the fare code doesn't change, but I'll go along with that assumption.
