Some genius just toke 1 SPG of my account, and it wasn't me.

When I have the time I'll check to who I was nice enough to allow using my account.

Confirmed:
1 ANA mile is enough to get back regular access to *A award search!
Transferred on Friday, reached ANA on Monday.

And yes Supe, the mile came from my account.  But surely someone with your snooping skills can figure out who stole your point  :D

So now the question is how can non-plats get one ANA mile?

It's possible ANA won't reject name-mismatches...YMMV.

I think we have a possibility for $.50 a point. If only one per transaction.

I have 80K in my account and it works fine. So the cutoff is somewhere between 1 and 80K ;D

Oh man, I transferred 1 point from spg in anticipation of this. But what you are saying is that ANA doesn't work, but KVS still does, right?

I'm traveling now, but if anyone wants to call ANA and see what's up that would be awesome.

On FT there are 2 reports that may help clarify. One member says he has 50 points but it is not working for him and another member has 100 points and it is working for him.
So the magic number seems to be 100 or possibly somewhere between 51-99 points

KVS is still working with 1 point so that's good.

Where did you see a report of a member with 100 miles that can access ANA without the workaround?
