Lenovo boxing week ends 1 day earlier than mentioned?

On ebates.ca and as I remember on Lenovo it said this coupon (Thinkboxing30 ) expires Jan3rd ?
Seems they pulled the plug early, or did I somehow read it wrong? I thought the day it expires is included?
Everywhere on the internet I find it, says Jan 3.
Air miles also says 3rd:

I asked on Chat, they said to call. I called, they said it depends which model I'm buying because the coupons expire at different times. Complete BS. Looks like I should be taking my business elsewhere. The EPP friends price is close, but this was better and they mis-advertised it to Jan 3rd, then they act stupid about it when I call them.

If you consider 26th to Jan 2nd, that's a week though... Why they'd advertise 3rd then, makes no sense.

Coupon expired January 3rd at 4AM ET. Got a nice agent that price matched the coupon on the chat.

Lenovo is a Chinese company that ships directly from China.

China time is UTC+8, so chances are that someone in mainland China screwed up the time zones when creating the coupons.
