Quick question on RENFE fares

I posted this on TA as well; hoping to get a fast answer!

If there are no Web fares or Estrella fares appearing when the fares first pop up for my date, does this mean there won't be any? May 2 is the travel date, the fares have just appeared as it is a few minutes after midnight in Spain. No Web or Estrella fares at all on the Madrid to Sevilla route, all day long. This is the start of the Feria. Does that mean they won't offer the discount fares for travel that day?

Or should I wait and hope they appear later?

Thanks!

And more now, confirming you were just a little quick off the mark.

Yes, the fares are there now. Thanks. I just expected them to show up right away, and they did not; it was 15 hours or so later. I'm glad I didn't buy yesterday at full price!

you have to actually go to the "buy tickets" to see the available discounted fares.

lincasanova---yes, I do that (go to "buy tickets") every time. The discounted fares just were not there when I first looked, yesterday, but they are now.

And I did get our tickets through Rumbo.es, thanks to your suggestion. RENFE has not worked for me but Rumbo.es does.
