"Buy up" to AS status

I'm seeing scattered reports here about AS having started a program where you can buy up to the next level of status if you are within certain EQM ranges. Is this policy documented somewhere? How close do you have to be in order to be eligible for a buy up option? Is it targeted or open to anyone within a certain EQM range?

For MVP, the Agent I spoke with gave cutoff of 500 or less miles short free, up to 1500 $200 and 1501-2500 I think was $400. Need to call in by first week of Jan to buy up. maybe it's similar for higher levels?

I'm 189 miles short of MVP and have a trip to LIH later this month so I will definitely reach MVP this year. It would be nice to be MVP BEFORE the trip to hopefully get better seats, priority boarding, and the bonus miles.

It doesn't cost anything to ask. Worst they're going to say is no.
