Interesting question.   I would gather they are tracking by accounts, addresses, names, cc's and ip's regardless.  If that's all different, fire away.

In parts of Europe you can send items to pick up points on a guest account, however you forgo vip points. I wonder if they are able to link your accounts together even if a disposable cc is used.

How many orders and on what set/s

I'm in a similar situation. Since the changed the limits to 2 (instead of 100) a few years ago, I've consistently placed multiple orders of 2 and never had any canceled. I ordered a bunch of the Star Wars 3 packs the first night that they dropped to $50 and ended up having some of the orders canceled. I also had my Walmart+ canceled. I tried placing more orders the following day for those same sets and each order got immediately canceled and my Walmart+ got canceled once again. 

Today I tried placing an order for a qty of 2 of a completely different set that I haven't purchased in over a month and it got immediately canceled for going over the qty limits. Soo... I'm definitely in some sort of bad spot with Walmart after not having this issue for the past few years but I'm not sure if I should just wait it out for a few days and try again or if I should contact them to see if they can/will allow me to place orders again. Right now, I'm planning on waiting for a few days. But if there are still issues then, I'll contact them. There are supposed to be some upcoming sales happening at Walmart all next week so I want to be sure that I can take advantage of those deals.

Maybe try a different credit card. Or just create a new account. Hope it helps.

A new credit card is my next try, but this account is set up tax exempt so I'd prefer not to open a new one.

Tax exempt for resale is a violation of terms of walmart+. They somehow allow it, but once someone actually sees the activity going on, they will give it the axe.

How many Star Wars bundles did you try to purchase?

yikes

I've bought plenty more than that of sets in the past (2 at a time) without ever having them canceled due to qty limits. So, something definitely changed.

It used to be a mysterious black art to avoid bans back when they had limits of 100 and then the process of when/why/how many you could order on the next order was also something that everyone and their brother had theories about. I have actually been happier since they put in the limit of 2 per order because I never ran into issues. Sure, the processing of the inbound shipments was more annoying than getting one box with 30-50 sets in it, but it was a price I was willing to pay to avoid getting banned. Now, it seems that has also changed.

Try setting up a new account just to see if the ban carries over.  In the past, Walmart hasn't been particularly efficient at enforcing bans and simply setting up a new account was all it would take to get around the cancellations.
