I personally see myself waiting until the next GC price drop/pack in promo as the system does not have enough value for me at this point but I'm not saying that it doesn't to you. (certain games appeal to others more)
I will however caution and say that if the BB offer was a mail in offer, you are better off forgetting about that gift card.

Well, I'm the proud owner of a GameCube, and exactly two games. (Mario Sunshine and Wind Waker.) I'll likely be purchasing a third when the next 3D Zelda comes out next year.
The point being, these games are so good that they're worth buying an entire system for. Especially since GC has always been as cheap as or cheaper than competing systems. (I'd be a lot happier if Nintendo would just give up and make games for XBox and/or PS2, though.)

No, it is instantly in store.
I don't "need" anything - but I want certain games, and those games are only on GameCube. Well, okay... I need Metroid Prime. *heh* But I also want Animal Crossing, Wario Ware, Harvest Moon, the RE games, Metal Gear Solid: Twin Snakes, and a few others.
There are enough games on the system that I can feel okay buying one. Plus, I'm not sure it is going to drop much cheaper anytime soon, and my urge to play Metroid Prime is growing too strong.

That $20 can go a long way if BB has a special or a sale. Some cube games are $20 or less.

I told myself that when the next gen systems came out, that there had to be at least 10 games to come out for a system (or be announced) to warrent me to buy a system and unfortunately, thats where the GC fails for me.
Granted, the system is quite cheap at the moment and I doubt I won't get a system ever - its just how low of a price it goes to (or what its bundled with) so I think I might wait and see what the holiday season brings us...
