Return question: Found a better deal on Amazon, need to return item to Bestbuy

Hi guys, I need some advice on what to do here. 2 weeks ago I bought a 2 node Velop system from Bestbuy for $270. I set it up, all is well. On Prime Day Amazon had it on sale + the AMEX 20% off, so I bought the same 2 node Velop for $191. I am inside my Bestbuy Return window of 30 days (I'm an elite member so I get 30 days), so I figured I would return the one I bought from Bestbuy and save $80. All of this is legal and ethical. My question is, can I return the Amazon package that is unopened to BB, or will they know it did not come from them? I figure they'd want an unopened package anyway, versus an opened one that can't go right back on the shelf. I just don't know if the bar codes will alert them that this is from another store. Worst case I was simply going to open the new package from Amazon, and put the unused nodes into the Bestbuy box. This way I don't have to disconnect my already in use nodes, and the store/buyer of the item I return will get a new product.

But, as for my original question, would Bestbuy know that the unopened Velop I bought on Amazon is not from their store, should I return it there?

Thanks in advance for all your help and advice.

Is there a serial#? Sometimes they match serial numbers to see if its the same one you bought from them

Good question. I'll check to see if each box has a serial number.

Just in case anyone was wondering, or ends up with a similar situation, I just returned the unopened Velop package I got from Amazon, to Best Buy, without issue. I brought my receipt and the unopened Velop set, they scanned my receipt, scanned the Velop box, beep beep and I walked out with my return receipt in hand. So apparently identical items don't scan differently even if they are from different retailers. I never knew this.
