So currently, without using my free Cat 1-5 night awarded with my Marriott CC, I watch the rates of future reservations and as the rates drop, I rebook at the lower rate and cancel the higher rate reservation.  My question is - what happens when I use my Cat 1-5 free night on the original reservation? When I rebook at the lower rate, then cancel the higher previously booked rate, how long does it take to get that 1 free night back on my account so I can use it again? Also, can I use it on an existing reservation? (Perhaps this will all be clearer once I reach the 1 year anniversary, but that hasn't happened yet.)
