Best Personal Assistant: HeyKuya

July 27, 2016 13 Comments

I first heard about HeyKuya through a random e-mail back in January.



See, told you it was random! But somehow, it got me to check out the site.

I only have to pay for the cost? And Kuya will do everything for free? It’s too good to be true, right? WRONG!


The million dollar question! Well, we generate income from partnerships with companies that want to reach out to potential customers from our established user base. As a result, exclusive user-targeted promotions coursed through HeyKuya serve as virtual collaborations with these companies. We do not sell, share, or provide our users’ data to any third party. We do not share or even save any of your confidential data. Your convenience and security in using our service is our priority.

At HeyKuya, we don’t charge users for our service. Fees we charge to users are only to compensate our third party drivers (if applicable) and/or parking fees (if applicable) and for your item, of course! For your convenience, we accept cash upon delivery.

HeyKuya’s only promise is to deliver only the best to make ticking the most frivolous and the most tedious tasks off your daily to-do-list something to look forward to.(source)

So a few months later, I was panicking about my band Cheats’ album relaunch and having to find new suppliers because we didn’t like the last one. I remembered HeyKuya and the promise that he would simply help me with my problems. I registered online, got a confirmation soon after, and I asked him for help. He gave me an array of shops, their addresses, their numbers, and suggestions on next steps to take. I didn’t even know that there was a printing press literally right across Jim’s office before Kuya told me about it!

He didn’t charge me because there was no cost for him to research for suppliers. Amazing! I immediately compared him to Apple’s Siri. “Siri na totoong tao. Na Pinoy. Na alam yung mga ganap dito.” Hahahaha that’s how I explained HeyKuya to my mom.

I’ve used him countless times after that. I had to focus on some work one day but had to get my bank certification picked up for my VISA. I texted Kuya, he sent me a messenger so I could give an authorization letter, and an hour later I had my bank certification with me. All while I was writing in a café. I was charged for the 2-way trip. The bank envelope was sealed tightly and it was not tampered with at all.

I’ve also asked his messengers deposit checks to different accounts. Kuya assured me that his guys are trustworthy. True enough, I received photos of deposit slips shortly!

Here’s a super random moment when I didn’t have the energy to talk to customer service:



He saved me P100 pa!!

I’ve been so incredibly obsessed with Kuya, I’ve had documents picked up and delivered left and right almost every day. It really is #TextOneThenDone. I know Kuya can also give restaurant recommendations but I haven’t tried asking! Will do for our next date night!

I want to make it clear that this isn’t a paid post, I simply want to help spread the word because I would hate for HeyKuya to go away. I’ve converted Jim into a HeyKuya addict as well. Haha!

Here’s how Kuya helped his small business with its deliveries:



Jim has been using their services ever since. He asked me, “If there were a monthly subscription for the service, would you pay?” and I said “Yes!”

From booking massages, looking for discounts, buying movie tickets so you don’t have to line up, to anything else you’d ask a personal assistant to help you with, I suggest you guys get on it while Kuya has no plans of charging for his services yet.😜

    Thank you very much for sharing this, Saab! For someone like me who’s working the night shift and have to run some errands during the morning (but too lazy ‘coz I’d rather sleep LOL), this is really perfect! Can’t wait to try this! :)

    Hello Saab!
    Waiting for my access! <3 I wonder if they operate 24/7? Have you tried reaching out to Kuya in the wee hours of the night? :)

      Mine was pretty fast but that was a long time ago, maybe there’s an influx of applicants! You can tweet them @HeyKuya for any questions :)

    WOW! I wish I knew about this when we came home from Cali. Grabe sobrang hassle to do anything because of traffic. Sobrang hindi na ako sanay. :(

    Hopefully HeyKuya is still around for our next trip to the Philippines!

    Hi, Saab! I read this post of yours last August 2016, and I suddenly remembered my teenage dream business that has the same concept with Hey Kuya. Since I was still new with my work at that time, and I just want to get paid with (not earn) money (may sense ba? HAHAHA!), binalewala ko na lang yung teenage dream ko, and I don’t have the money to start the business. Fast forward to February 2017, my best friend and I wanted to start a business na. We’re still collecting ideas pa rin on what business we should establish, how to establish it. I want to study how Hey Kuya started, and how can they really earn from their service, but I can’t access their sites. Maybe you can help me get thru someone connected with Hey Kuya. That would be a great help :) Thank you in advance! God bless you always!

      Nice! What about a monthly payment? I would pay for that service :) Try e-mailing their CEO (shahab[at]heykuya[dot]com) but don’t know if that address still works! Good luck :)
