Yea you can switch back and forth at will during the free offer
August will be when and if M$ starts getting picky about how many times someone can switch back and forth
Retails might have a advantage over oem and even oem system builders.

Then I"ll take the 128gb out, upgrade to Windows 10 on the 250gb, and run that setup for a few days before taking the 250gb out and sliding the 128gb in and run Windows 7. Sometime in August I'll replace the 128gb Windows 7 with the 250gb Windows 10 disk and see if Microsoft screams at me.

Is a good sign if you look at it.

They are also tweaking activation rules,

Microsoft tweaks activation rules for Windows 10 Anniversary Update - Windows 10 Forums
