This is an eggcorn I’ve seen in several student papers. The most recent example: “We have all had [secrets] at one point and time in our lives.” Two points to make here: one is that in casual speech there is no difference in pronunciation between the proper “in” and the eggcorn “and”; two, the eggcorn is both grammatical and logical.
