I am using the Miles&More Credit Cards (Classic in silver). I got a whopping 20k miles for signing up last year. There are offers like this sometimes. Currently there is a 12k miles-bonus: https://www.miles-and-more-cards.ch/en/

You get an AMEX and Mastercard. The AMEX gets you 0.75 miles per CHF spent and the Mastercard only 0.3 miles. So I always try AMEX first, but there are restaurant or shops that don't accept it due to the higher fees. For those cases I still have my Mastercard.

I used the UBS credit cards before, but their conversion rate from UBS KeyPoints to miles is much worse. I don't quite remember what it was though and can't check right now.

Another way to collect miles in Switzerland is the Coop SuperPoints. When shopping at Coop supermarkets you earn 1 Point per CHF and with 7,500 or 10'000 Points you can get 3,750 or 5,000 miles resp., see here https://www.praemienshop.ch/de/Gutsc...eilen/p/159010

Another way is also via Coop: You can collect coupons in the Coop Trophy (there is a new one each half of the year, I think) with 10 CHF spent equals 1 coupon. With 25 coupons you can buy 2000 miles for an additional 35 CHF, see here https://www.coop.ch/de/einkaufen/trophy/milesmore.html (only in German).

Oh, and it also helps to fly Swiss and Lufthansa

Hope that helps
