I just logged into my account and found a banner that says promotion ended at 12 AM on 12/13.

Does that mean that everyone who purchased last night has gotten burned?

Definitely, if they don't give in.

Buckling up.
Getting the popcorn.
I just hope that it doesn't end up with a devaluation of the miles.

They did say that the offer was subject to availability of bonus miles so wouldn't that give them a legal out
They can reasonably say that they never meant to give out this many miles

I donated 2K this morning 2am.
Should I call Barclays and try to cancel the charge (it’s still pending)?

Based on Gary’s latest update it i suspect Mastercard is footing the bill here. It looks optimistic though that it will be honored

Gotta take aadvantage quick. Heard from so many people and even experts (ahem, @AJK, et al) that didn't signup right away, which surprised me greatly.

Signed up right away but didn't get targeted for the good deals. Nothing better than 3 miles per $1, plus a few like BB and CVS offering x miles for $y spend (x5). Your own post said you didn't get targeted until 26 hours later... so I didn't expect it right away anyway, but no loss really for others who didn't even try to sign up

This is the concern.

not in the court of public opinion, you pull the promo when it runs out.

One problem may be time to track. If it is not instant then there is a delay in pulling.

That title is misleading, they are in “discussion “ with mastercard
Probably the same title they been using. Mastercard must be involved in footing some of the bill. Hope it works out for everyone.

I think the whole reason AA was so generous despite knowing that this is being hammered is because MasterCard is paying, not AA

AA is making a lot of money if Mastercard foots the bill.
