Alinma Wins Best Debit Card Award

Alinma Bank has received the “Best Debit Card – Saudi Arabia” award from Banker Middle East magazine.  The accolade recognizes Alinma’s successful effort to provide its partners (customers) with an exemplary, innovative card solution through the Alinma mada  Debit Card.

Speaking about the award, Alinma Bank CEO, Mr. Abdulmohsen Al-Fares said that from its inception, the bank had made every effort to create card solutions that would not only meet, but also exceed partner expectations.  Toward that end, Al-Fares said, Alinma launched in 2009 with the ability to instantly issue its cards in-branch at the time of account opening.  He noted that all Alinma cards have had secure smartchip technology from the bank’s inception as well. 

Al-Fares went on to detail other groundbreaking features of its mada debit card, including the CVV2 and “Verified By Visa” services that add an extra layer of security when shopping online, as well as the ability, through Alinma Internet, to activate and deactivate the online purchasing feature. 

The Alinma mada Debit Card is available upon request at all Alinma branch locations and provides special discounts on select brands at the point of sale, without the need for special registration or vouchers.   This gives Alinma partners exclusive deals on hotel, airline, and car rental reservations as well as offers related to healthcare, training, dining, fashion, education, and general shopping.
