No doubt now that the release date has been announced you dashed to the store to order up your copy. There is a snag at the moment though with pre-orders of the expansion affecting some players’ live licenses.
We're currently investigating reports that pre-purchasing the expansion is affecting some live licenses. http://t.co/Zckt841Pce

Have you pre-ordered and spotted something weird? You can tell Blizzard in this thread.
Update: Blizzard reports that the problem has been corrected.
If you are, try relogging first. If the issue or issues persist after relogging, please let us know.
Thanks all! For those reporting an Error 3003, this is apparently due to the PTR and Closed Beta being offline for maintenance (this particular maintenance appears to be Battle.net-related and not directly connected with Diablo III). We’ll get the appropriate messaging up ASAP.
For those of you who were receiving an Error 3003 or Error 33 when logging into the PTR/Closed Beta, Battle.net maintenance has concluded–which means the PTR and Closed Beta should once again be available. (May take a few minutes before everything is completely stable and error-message-free, though.)
