Depending on how far out the flight is, I've had success with seats opening up, so keep checking back.

And if that fails:

Im not sure i want seats to open up.... wont they automatically give me extra legroom?? I have a confirmed booking but no seats.

It's happened to me, but as always YMMV.
Maybe someone with a crystal ball can tell you more.

Thanks found it
When United did the devaluation last year, you were able to book before it happened, and then cancel and have United hold your reservation, and then after the devaluation you were able to book for less amount not the greater, can it be done with this?

I booked an award flight and paid fees with ink card instead of my united card. Can i get a free bag by showing the card? Any other options?

If card is linked to your account you should be getting a free bag, doesn't matter how you paid.

Officially you need to use the card to book the reservation to get the free bag. Even just the $5.60 taxes.

Reports of people being charged otherwise. Obviously YMMV.
