What is the best practice here? I'm happy to save a few bucks, but I also don't mind changing the oil and filter early if that's going to keep my rebuilt engine healthy.

Thanks in advance for your advice!
Personally, I would do an early oil change to more quickly get rid of the break-in products that would be in your oil.

You may also want to read up on engine break-in best practices. There are techniques to help ensure the rings seat into the cylinder walls the way they need to.
