Weird eBay experience

So I bought a 1TB 970 Evo Plus NVME drive for $129 on eBay, about 4 days later I get an email from Best Buy saying my package had shipped from store 923 (one a few hours from me) and would be arriving via Fed Ex, today my NVME drive shows up from Fed Ex with Best Buy fulfillment Kentucky address on the label, eBay sends an email about item delivered. It's the drive I ordered from eBay from definitely NOT Best Buy. If I go on the Best Buy website the same drive is $149. Package is unopened, drive is the correct drive. What's going on here? Seller has low feedback and is a pretty new account, usually I check that out before buying but with the low price I figured I'd take the gamble.

Ya, sometimes with employee discounts and promotions when I worked there when I was younger I could buy (back then it was the original xbox) games and systems lower than basically anywhere. Especially when it was first released and prices went crayz ala the new 3000 series NVidia cards now. So I would sell them on craigslist/ebay. So maybe its that?

They might have a discount code or MIR for the drive and just act as a middle man to make an easy profit by just giving your address when buying from BestBuy.  

Hmmmmm.....🤔

Very sure, I bought from a seller with a feedback score of 2 and no other items listed. Super sketchy!
