They'll probably be sending over things like bookmarks and keychains that the store can use at front desks, for prizes in games, etc.; for Harry Potter releases, for instance, B&N handed out plastic glasses, temporary tattoos and keychains.

I only hope they won't hand out vampire teeth. Uuugh, that'd be bad.

Little, Brown, the publisher of Twilight, is sending T-shirts & stuff to the Barnes & Noble bookstores for the midnight release parties of Breaking Dawn. They are given away as prizes if you win trivia contests or costume contests. I know my B&N is also giving away free books.

Barnes and Noble is already giving away bracelets when you pre-order a book at the store. It says "Barnes and Noble" on one side and then says "Breaking Dawn 8-2-08". They might hand those out.
My friend saw my bracelet and then got mad, and declared, "How'd you get one?? I didn't!" Then she realized she pre-ordered at Borders and promptly pre-ordered at B&N instead.
And Liza Loo, I agree, vampire fangs would be horrible! *shudder*

Bracelets?! Luckyy.

I preordered at Borders because the book costs cheaper there (well-being a member atleast) and the B&N is like right down the street from Borders so I can chill there all night then go to Borders for the book. :)

If you pre-ordered online you might not have gotten it. I went in the store (to read the first chapter of BD) and pre-ordered it there in person. The lady there gave it to me and gushed about it, telling me they put the date on so I'd remember (jeez, does she know who I am? How could I forget?). But one girl I knew said she had to ask them for it after seeing her friend had it, so go pester them. But maybe it's something local, although it did have Barnes and Noble on it, so it might be more broad.

For MY B&N I got it right when I pre-ordered it at the store. Maybe others will give it to you night-of, it may depend on your local B&N and their manager. And I am not going to say you're guaranteed one. PLEASE DON'T SHOOT THE MESSANGER!!!
But it's not some fancy bracelet or anything. It's one of those that's like, rubbery and they have for Live Strong and breast cancer and all that-very cheap. You could probably order 100 of your own for like $20.
