Sales for 4th July in US show $0 revenue

I've just checked my sales data for the 4th of July, and one of my games has $0 revenue for each copy sold in the US. I dont know if Apple is doing some promotional thing for the US due to their national holiday, but I never agreed to that iTunes still lists the correct price for the US store, so I'm absolutely puzzled.

Is anyone else seeing this?

Nononono. Apple didnt do anything. They cant do that. You might want to contact them about it but they didnt make something free without you knowing.

Are you sure you're not looking at updates? Because those are included with regular sales, and they are $0.

As Eric points out one possible reason is people updating (if there was an update issued). Another possible reason would be someone redeeming a promo code - did you give any codes away?

Thanks Eric (and everyone else who posted the same thing), that's exactly what happened (approved game update). It's the first time I noticed the stats after a game update. My mistake.

We now return to your regular scheduled progam.
