My favorite airlines are Lufthansa and Swiss, I already earned their elite status. As I heard, they are a part of Star Alliance. So can I combine miles with other Star Alliance members?

No, you can’t combine miles like that. It’s easier with the members of the Miles&More program, which Lufthansa and Swiss are. Miles are usually not transferable to a different program with different terms & conditions.

If you are preoccupied with miles stored on different programs, then you should probably take care of your miles accrual. Getting a travel credit card will give you additional miles, and that will be quite a lot. If you acquire a Discover it® Miles card, you can increase the inflow of miles, earning on every purchase. In addition, the Discover credit card doesn’t have any annual fee.
