But without being able to find whatever I’m remembering, that’s not very helpful.

I got a JL award ticket last year for 25,000 points using a combination of points transferred from SPG and a small top-up. At that time I had no points from flying on AS or a partner and my account was opened in early 2018. I had no issues. The ticket was only for myself.
