  7. I don't have this information if they provide credit card without opening an account coz I applied for mine after opening the account and Credit Card fee was automatically deducted from my account. I would suggest to call their Customer Service Center to get this information.

    1. They should not ask for the pin number so it must be a scam website, don't proceed on that and report it to Al Rajhi Bank
