Cyber Monday Email 2012 -- Link to Expired Deal? [now fixed]

Has anybody else experienced this? I just got an email from AA announcing a Cyber Monday fare sale for Chicago. When I follow the link on the e-mail, the domestic fare sale page reads:

"This offer has expired. To find more great airfare deals visit our Fare Sales and Special Offers page."

The sale is supposed to end at 11:59 PM.

Did they run out of seats? ;-)

What I also found strange, at least in my case, the email did not come until about an hour ago. Normally anykind of "Cyber Monday" sale (multiple products) would come out in the early morning or at least mid morning.

I checked from NYC, nothing special or MR worthy. LGA/ORD was $136 (assuming its bookable), not bad if you have a desire or need to visit Chicago in wintertime.

Received the email five minutes ago. The US deals link shows expired, while the links for the rest appear to work..

Kind of odd, though, to have deals to Mexico appear when I click on the link for Asia/Europe..

I got the same email... also 5 minutes ago. Also expired. Way to go.......

I looked for an area in the useless help section to see if I could send an inquiry... but I can't find a category that applies.

AA, via twitter, says they are aware of the problem and are working to fix it.

Did anyone find any actual deals? I checked all my planned future itins within the promo period. In each case, the sale price is either the same or higher than the price I've been tracking before the deal was announced.
