    from the other, so it's not all taking from the brick-and-mortar. Stipp: Gift cards have been a big component of holiday shopping in the past, but they are counted a little bit differently when sales actually happen. What's the deal with gift cards this year? Johnson: Gift cards are only counted, as always, when they are actually used. So, if you purchase a gift card and give it, until that you actually into the store and redeem it, it's not counted as a sale. That's been a big deal in past years.

Johnson: Correct. Stipp: What about the idea? You mentioned that some shopping might have happened earlier, but that we have
