Early but limited access to Black Friday deals seems to be a growing trend this year.

Target and Walmart have already offered this type of early-bird deal this holiday shopping season. Now, their online archrival, Amazon, has released its Black Friday schedule and deals, including select bargains you can snag as early as today.

Most of the discounts fall on Thanksgiving — which is Nov. 23 — through Cyber Monday, which is Nov. 27. But at least one noteworthy deal is available now, and Amazon promises new deals every day of the season.

You can find such deals starting now at Amazon.com’s Black Friday webpage. So, go ahead and bookmark that webpage now.

Here’s a closer look at the schedule Amazon released Tuesday:

Now through Dec. 23 — Amazon Music Unlimited offer

Amazon is offering three months of Music Unlimited for $0.99. This is the first time the company has offered this deep discount to both Amazon Prime members and non-Prime members.

Amazon Music Unlimited is an on-demand music-streaming service that competes with the likes of Spotify. Subscribers get unlimited access to tens of millions of songs.

An individual subscription normally costs $7.99 per month for Prime members and $9.99 per month for non-Prime members. A family subscription for up to six people is $14.99 per month.

Note that, according to the fine print for this offer, it is valid only:

  • For new Amazon Unlimited Music subscribers.
  • Through 11:59 p.m. PT Dec. 23. The account and offer must be activated by that time, too.

Nov. 17 to Nov. 24 — Black Friday deals galore

Amazon has released a lengthy list of deals that it says will be “available on various dates and times” and “while supplies last” from Nov. 17 to Black Friday. They fall into the following categories:

  • Amazon devices
  • Electronics
  • Toys
  • Home furnishings
  • Smart home devices
  • Video games
  • TVs, movies and books
  • Pet supplies
  • Sports and outdoors
  • Items sold by small businesses and entrepreneurs

Again, watch for these deals on Amazon.com’s BlackFriday page. You can also find a list of upcoming deals in Amazon’s Nov. 14 press release.

Starting Nov. 19 — 50 percent off holiday cards

Amazon Prints, which is Amazon’s photo printing service, is offering 50 percent off holiday cards. This deal starts on Nov. 19, and more information will be available on the Amazon Prints webpage.

Here’s what Amazon has said so far about the offer:

“Create high-quality, custom cards and share holiday messages with friends and loved ones. Cards are printed on ultra-thick, matte cardstock and include envelopes with free return address printing plus free delivery with Prime.”

Starting Nov. 22 — early access for voice shoppers

Starting at 5 p.m. PT Nov. 22, the day before Thanksgiving, voice shoppers will get exclusive early access to some of Amazon’s Black Friday deals. More information will be available on Amazon’s voice shopping webpage.

Voice shopping refers to ordering items from Amazon using your voice and one of Amazon’s voice-activated Echo devices and other Alexa devices — rather than using your fingers and, say, a computer or smartphone.

Nov. 24 to Nov. 27 — Amazon Restaurants offer

Amazon Restaurants is a food delivery service for Prime members. To find out if it’s available in your area, scroll down toward the bottom of the Amazon Restaurants webpage and enter your ZIP code.

Folks who make their first Amazon Restaurants order from Black Friday to Cyber Monday will get $10 off a qualified order and free delivery. More information will be available on the Amazon Restaurants webpage.

If you can’t wait until then, note that you can currently save $10 on their first qualified order, according to the Amazon Restaurants webpage.
