I noticed that the Your World sale expired in the time zone of the hotel, rather than in the time zone you were making your booking from.

Sounds a trivial thing, but frustrating when trying to book the IC in Madrid from a San Francisco hotel room.

And earlier, when rooms in Europe were available, i had to learn to track them down in the final room category listed, "standard rooms", and even there they were hiding behind reward nights.
