Walmart - change delivery address of preorder

So I have an issue with Walmart.ca and I am wondering if anyone else can provide some insight. So last year Walmart has E3 sale with 30% off some Game Pre-Orders, so I snagged Cyberpunk 2077 for a really good price. I am paying $56 vs $80 for a physical copy. At the time I got all deliveries to my work address. Now I am WFH and the office is generally closed.

So I've found out that orders placed on walmart.ca cannot have their delivery address changed, has anyone else gotten around this? I want to have to order delivered to my house, but after speaking with their support people the only way to change the address is to cancel the order and place a new one. I obviously don't want to do this as I would lose my discounted price.

Seems crazy that their system locks the order and disallows any changes, other than cancellation.

Does the courier allow you to change the address after the label is created and it's in their system?

Yep Walmart has the least flexible online system of all big retailers. It has been like this for years. You can't even cancel an order after 30 minutes of placing it.

Unfortunately I think it will be shipped to the original destination and if nobody is there it will go back to Walmart.

Your office will either be open when they deliver or pick up at post office / courier depot?

most do however i know that the shipper can select an option to lock out the option to change address. best buy does this i know when the post office when on strike they switched the shipment to puro even though i was using a flex delivery po box puro couldn't deliver there and puro said they weren't aloud to change to my home address because bb set a restriction on that.
