Frequently Asked Questions
  1. What is the AFF Program is all about?

    AFF Program is a RISK-FREE, REFERRAL REWARD SYSTEM. It is an opportunity for you as a member to earn rewards by referring your friends and families to the bank. Cash rewards will be given to qualified members for every successful financing customer referred to the bank after they have made monthly payments of their obligations on time.

  2. What are the benefits if I join this program?

    The program provides you an opportunity to earn passive income. If you are also our customer for Auto, Home or Personal financing, you can utilize your passive income from the program to REDUCE YOUR FINANCE PAYMENTS. Should you have sufficient customers under your referral, the passive income may be used to REDUCE your own monthly obligations. Members may also use this opportunity as a business to earn much higher passive income.

  4. How can I join this wonderful program?

    You may walk in to any of our branches or sales centre and request to register as an AFF Member. You may then apply to take our Auto, Home or Personal Financing from Al Rajhi, if necessary. As an AFF Member, you may then Refer your friends and your family members to apply for any one of Al Rajhi Bank’s Financing Products – PERSONAL Financing-i, AUTO Financing-i or HOME Financing-i.

  5. What should I do after I register as member?

    Congratulations! You may now start referring as many as possible of your friends and families to the AFF Program. These new customers will need to repeat what you have just done by referring more of their friends and families. You are encouraged to open at least a saving account for the bank to facilitate the payment of monthly incentive.

    Back to Top

  6. What are the conditions to be met in order to reap the Reward?

    It is very simple. The condition is that the Profit will only be shared if the monthly installments are paid promptly before or on the due date every month. Any Finance Payments in arrears will not entitle you to receive the Reward (This condition is to be met at anytime in order to reap the Referral Rewards). This profit will then be given out based on your type of membership.

    Back to Top

  7. Where will the profit come from?

    Every time, a member of AFF makes their monthly PROMPT payment, Al Rajhi will earn a certain profit amount. After deducting all the cost, the bank has decided to share a certain percentage of profit to the members. Al Rajhi believes in sharing and it will truly share its income. We value our business partners.

    Back to Top

  8. What are the categories of AFF membership?

    Basically, there are 3 categories of membership. Each classification is determined monthly based on the number of customers that you refer. Please see below for detailed explanation.

    Category of Membership Classification Criteria Payment of Accumulated Incentive (%)
    PREMIUM Refer and maintain 14 or less financing customers to the Bank within his/her four levels of network. 50%
    SPECTRUM Refer and maintain at least 15 financing customers to the Bank within his/her four levels of network. Out of 15 financing customers in the network, 4 of them have to be in Level 1 of the network. 75%
    TITAN Refer and maintain at least 35 financing customers with the Bank within his/her four levels of network. Out of 35 financing customers in the network, 4 of them have to be Spectrum members. 100%

    The percentage in the right column is to determine how much incentive to be credited into your account. For example, if your network brings you a total of RM1,500 referral income and if you are only a Premium member (determined by the number of members you bring in), you will only get 50% of the RM1,500. Therefore, for that particular month, you will get RM750 (50%).

    Refer to CHART A for more information

  9. How can I check my membership category?

    We will send you the monthly membership statement to your registered address. You can also check via any of our branches or call to our customer service hotline.

    Back to Top

  10. What makes The AFF Program different from the referral schemes offered by other banks?

    In our AFF Program, we will reward the member so long as the friends and family that they refer still maintain his/her financing account with the Bank. As a general rule, their monthly installment should be paid on time every month. Other Bank’s referral program practice one-off incentive payment.

    Back to Top

  11. What is the difference between AFF and pyramid scheme?

    AFF is applying the concept of Ju’alah – “A unilateral contract promising a reward for the accomplishment of a specified task”. Member will not be rewarded by only referring others to join as members. Reward will only be shared if the member referred had applied and have been approved for financing. Members also are expected to remind the referred members to make their monthly installment payments on time. Therefore, there are certain activities that are expected to be performed.

    Whereas in the pyramid scheme, most of the time no product is involved and members will be rewarded solely based on referring others to join their network and at the same time request new members to pay certain sum of money.

    Back to Top

  12. I understand in Islamic banking, a reward is given upon completing a task. What is my responsibility in this program in order for me to reap the reward?

    This AFF Program is using the Ju’alah concept where a certain performance of duties will entitle the performer for certain benefits. First, you have to refer financing customers to the bank. And secondly, since you know the referred customers within your network, you are responsible to remind members to serve their installment on time. This activity is passed on to every member where eventually everyone will be reminded to make PROMPT payment.

    Only when PROMPT payment is made that the bank shall reward you and your team network accordingly.

    Back to Top

  13. What’s the best strategy to fully REDUCE my finance repayment?

    The system is not designed for you to only refer one customer and wait for the results. The system requires you to continue to refer your friends and families to the program and obtain financing from Al Rajhi Bank. You may refer to the calculation sheet where it tells you how much you can possibly earn from an assumed financing amount. You may then divide your monthly installment with these referral earnings. The results will tell you the minimum customers you need to refer to get the potential of having your monthly payment reduced. But please be reminded that you may only earn the referral income when the referred customers make PROMPT payment on or before the due date. Even if the referred customers make his monthly payment one day late of the actual date, that payment will NOT entitle you for the referral income.

    Back to Top

  14. How can I convert the AFF Program into an Income Generator for myself?

    After your monthly installment payments have been fully offset (if you do have existing financing from ARB) from the AFF Program, the balance Cash Rewards that are received monthly will continue to be accumulated until the end of financing tenure for all customers that you have referred. This will continue to become your additional income thus, the More you Refer, the More Cash Rewards you’ll receive and the Faster you’ll be able to Fully Reduce all your finance payments. That is your Additional Passive Income that you’ll enjoy!

  15. Is the calculation transparent? Can I trust it?

    Definitely yes. Being trustworthy is a key element in keeping our integrity as an Islamic Bank. We value your trust with absolute priority and commitment.
