Question Ship luggage to ORD to avoid AA luggage charge?

Hi, folks.
I am flying CLT-ORD and ORD-NRT in a few weeks. I have Sapphire OW status. My CLT-ORD flight is on AA in Y so I can get two checked bags free. A third bag would cost $150. I'm flying in J ORD-NRT so I can take three checked bags free. Unfortunately, the flights are not interlined -- they are two separate reservations. I'm expecting to be bringing a good amount of stuff with me and will probably need the third bag.

My question is: Can I ship the bag to JAL in ORD, pick it up and check it on the JAL flight? I really don't want to pay the $150 AA fee.
