AS SDC and cancel help for 75k or MVP

I have a similar situation coming up. MVPG 75K flying solo. Booked a 6am flight on Saturday and a 6am flight on Sunday for a return to SEA. Those flights were both about $100. I want to fly the Saturday 5PM flight but not for the $250 listed. I am planning to SDC at 10pm Fri to get on the 5pm on Saturday....or any afternoon flight on Sat. (and cancelling the Sunday flight to use the credit later).

I can't make the Sat 6am flight so if I can't SDC or standby I would like to cancel the Sat. ticket and use the, already booked, Sunday ticket.

Does this seem like a good plan? If I can't get the SDC booked at 10pm the night before, can I still miss the flight and standby the rest of the day? And if i don't get the standby can I still cancel the Sat. ticket for credit back and take the Sunday flight?

I have another trip doing the same thing but this time with my wife who is MVP. Can I still cancel a ticket for both of us and get the full credit without a change fee for her? (I read earlier on this post about the possible "work around" but I'm curious about the official AS rule that applies to a 75k and MVP cancelling a ticket and using the credit later).

Thanks in adcance for the advice. I'm a newly converted AS 75k from DL Plat and I'm so happy to be with the best airline now...and really happy I moved to SEA from CHI.
