    For those in US.

    Just successfully ordered one. Who knows if it will get cancelled.

    Figured I could switch out the BotW disk and return.

    The one from Dell.com got cancelled as I expected.

    The disk in the SE is the same as regular release. So I just pull the unopened disk out of the Walmart order and return it to whatever store I purchased the the disk on 3/3. (Like maybe Walmart)

    Chances are the game box in SE is a "not for resale" version that won't scan properly for returns, so that won't work.

    And what's the point of this? Do you save some bucks?

    That is a possibility and risk. If so I have several options.
    1. Its Walmart, as long as the wrapper is still on the disc I can return the whole SE. It is free shipping so I am not out money except time to stop at the Walmart down the road.

    2. Sell sealed disc at full or near full price on eBay. I still have free listings so all I pay is the PayPal fee and 2.67 shipping. Better than paying $150 for the SE on eBay.

    3. My Walmart Switch preorder was instore with no guaranteed date. I may not even have a Switch on Launch Day.

    Play BotW on launch day and still get the goodies in the SE a week later. Do you have a suggestion of where I can purchase the SE on launch day without camping out for 6 hours?

    :D
    Cool. If they give it to you then just sell the game on ebay. Should end up with about $40 after fees n shipping.
