Promotions, seasonal menu items and hacks on how to save, here’s your essential guide to what’s cooking at McDonald’s this month.
Love it or hate it, but you cannot ignore McDonald’s.
With Phase 2 (Heightened Alert) in place from 16 May, you’d most likely end up ordering via McDelivery regardless of your mood or occasion. It could be for a quick breakfast with the folks, after a night on the town or simply because you want a box of 20-piece McNuggets and a McFlurry to celebrate singlehood.
So if you’re like us and you can’t wait to get your McDonald’s fix, here’s what you need to know about their new opening hours, and how to save on your next McDelivery or GrabFood order.
Last updated on 17 May 2021. McDonald’s promotions and deals are subject to change without prior notice.
Current McDonald’s promotions and new menu items
Delivery-exclusive breakfast bundles
Being the most important meal of the day, McDelivery has created two special breakfast bundles that are good for two to three people.
The first bundle consists of a Big Breakfast Extra Value Meal and a Sausage McMuffin with Egg Extra Value Meal. Prices start from S$14.40.
The second bundle consists of a Big Breakfast Extra Value Meal, a Sausage McMuffin with Egg Extra Value Meal , and a Hot Cakes Happy Meal. Prices start from S$19.30.
How much does a McDonald’s Extra Value Meal cost now?
Over the years, prices for McDonald’s Extra Value Meals have increased considerably.
Not so long ago, double cheeseburgers would come for a mere $S2. Fast forward to 2021, a regular cheeseburger on McDelivery costs S$3.20 — almost twice the price!
Apart from the overall price increase, how much each meal costs also depends on whether you are ordering at a restaurant or on McDelivery.
At restaurants, you will still find the budget-friendly S$5 McChicken and Filet-O-Fish Extra Value Meals hidden behind main menu items.
For those ordering on McDelivery, the cheapest meal you can find is a McChicken Extra Value Meal, which is priced at $S5.95. The most expensive meal is an Angus BLT Extra Value Meal, which would set you back by a whopping S$9.80.
And this doesn’t even include the S$4.00 delivery charge.

Has McDonald’s changed their opening hours?
With Phase 2 (Heightened Alert) happening from 16 May, dining in will be disallowed. But the good news is, McDonald’s restaurants (including those which are situated in parks), McCafé counters and dessert kiosks will be open daily.
Opening hours vary depending on outlet, but in general, they are open from 6am to 12am daily. Some McDelivery, GrabFood and selected Drive-Thrus are open until 2am.
Dining-in at your favourite McDonald’s is now in accordance to social distancing guidelines. You will find that tables have been placed 1-meter apart, seats are marked and protective shields have been installed at the front counter.
McDonald’s x GrabFood
GrabFood has its own set of monthly promo codes that gives you a discount on your entire bill. Your savings could range from $3 to $8, depending on your user type (new or existing) and how much your total bill is.
For May 2021, enter promo code TEATIME to get free delivery on Fridays to Sundays between 3pm to 5pm.
