Is there any point in holding on to acceptances to places you don't think you'll go, even if you get a good financial package?

What I'm really asking is, is there any truth to the claim that if you get a really good fin aid package from a school you wouldn't really want to attend, you can turn around to the school you'd rather attend and say that you're getting a much better offer from elsewhere, and can they match that?

Does this happen? Would they even care/adjust your fin aid?

yes, a school did it for me because they are very interested in my matriculation and matched my state school's tuition even though i haven't even been accepted there (still waiting on an answer). some schools are willing to do this.
