The best card to pair with Chase Sapphire Reserve is Chase Freedom Flex. It gives you 5% cash back on up to $1,500 spent per quarter in bonus categories (which change every quarter and require activation), 5% cash back on travel through Chase, 3% back at restaurants and drugstores, and 1% back on all other purchases. It also comes with a $0 annual fee, and you can transfer points to the Sapphire Reserve account.
Outside of the Chase family, consider combining Sapphire Reserve with Citi Double Cash. Using the Double Cash card for purchases outside of dining or travel will get you 2% cash back, 1% when you make the purchase and an additional 1% when you pay the bill. You can redeem Double Cash rewards for straight cash back and use all of your Sapphire Reserve points on travel purchases.
