You can use both together but personally I've never found it necessary - remember that the polariser will usually darken the sky anyway..

Stacking filters is never a good idea. It will degrade the image, but you may not notice it immediately..
The two filters you've mentioned do very different things, and I understand why you want to use both. My opinion would be to decide on which is more important; reduction of glare/increased saturation, or bringing subject brightness ranges under control...
I'll be shooting lakes and mountains so will really want to get the reflection off the water under control so I can bring out the detail under the water - but I will also want to try and control the brightness balance between the sky and land.....
What to do, what to do....?!..

You can do a certain amount of brightness balancing at the pp stage if necessary. If I had to pick one for the situation described it would be a polariser. If you do stack it helps to keep the filters clean and to avoid angles where sunlight is falling on the glass/resin surfaces , using a hand can be suprisingly effective for shading.Shay son of Che..
Agreed with that. You can't duplicate the anti-reflective properties of a polarizer in post, but you can deal with SBR as long as the image hasn't clipped whites or dead blacks...
