I don't think this has anything to do with points.com. My understanding is that the OP bought the points for his own MP account then wanted to redeem for a family member.

This seems to be a further example of AS clamping down on purchasing miles to be used by someone other than the account holder. Check out the thread where a longstanding MP member had a friend's ticket cancelled at the last minute...

AS Cancels EK Award Tickets for My Friend [Possible Merge]

The question is whether AS's T&C's permit or preclude the purchase of a ticket for a friend or family member, particularly when the account holder is not travelling.
