Getting a credit card to earn on your flights is a good idea, getting a Swiss co-branded credit card – not so much. First, it’s unavailable to the USA residents. Second, you are going to miss the best deals. Nowadays there are regular travel credit cards that offer much better conditions than airline co-branded cards. You earn more points and you are not tied to a specific airline. You may fly any airline other than Swiss and still get points or redeem them. For example, Discover it® Miles gives you a travel statement credit for your miles that you can spend not only on flights, but also on taxis, hotels and a lot more.
