I did reserve the best seat I wanted on the first one, tho... any advice?
if you think you will know within 24 hours, you still have the option to purchase at the end and do a few-free refund within 24 hours.

Honestly, letting you hold for 7 days is pretty generous (even with a fee). Rightly so, no way to extend. You can always set up and pay for a new 7 day farelock, if the saver award is still available, but make sure you cancel the old one right after. This thread has reports of UA canceling reservations when one has more than one farelock with the same flight in it.
