International Purchases Can Trigger Chase Offers (Ex: Starbucks in Europe)

Good morning everyone, I hope you had a great weekend. Last week, I wrote How Quickly Does Cash Back Post for Chase Offers? Then a few days ago, I added / linked a Starbucks Chase Offer to my Chase Sapphire Reserve Credit Card. I would earn 5% cash back at Starbucks, up to a maximum of $1.50 cash back ($30 x 5% = $1.50). Last week, I went to a Starbucks in Bucharest, Romania, and bought my mom a Starbucks mug (she has a collection of Starbucks mugs from around the world). Surprisingly, a few days after purchasing the Starbucks mug, I got an email from Chase stating that I had earned 91 cents cash back with the Starbucks Chase Offer.

I had forgotten that I added / linked the Starbucks Chase Offer to my credit card and I was surprised that an international purchase triggered the Chase Offer.

I’m not sure this will work 100% of the time, but it makes sense to add / link all Chase Offers to your Chase credit cards (it only takes a few seconds), and hope that your purchase will trigger the Chase Offer. Have you made any international purchases that trigger Chase Offers? If so, please share your data points in the comments. If you have any questions about Chase Offers, please leave a comment below. Have a great day everyone!

P.S. I also bought my mom a Starbucks mug from Sophia, Bulgaria, but that purchase is still pending on my credit card. I expect that purchase to earn cash back too.
