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:

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

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 (only in German).

Oh, and it also helps to fly Swiss and Lufthansa

Hope that helps
