These are the most popular online Black Friday deals among shoppers - and there are some surprises

Business Insider SA

As it turns out, the Black Friday deals that are marketed hardest to shoppers are not always those that turn out to be most popular.

This is clear from looking at the bestseller and most-popular purchases categories on South Africa's largest online stores, which include a R400 breast pump (normally R680) and a R1,500 bread maker going for R870.

We've compiled a list of deals that top these lists and are still available:
