You just need to show a valid Swiss Card. "Valid" means that your name and travel date is on it. Yes, you can start your first trip later, but that also means that the Swiss Card is not valid before that. It's validity starts with the first free transfer.
Yes, Geneva - Verbier would be the free transfer, and Verbier - Grindelwald would be at half the fare. Grindelwald - Zurich airport is the second free transfer.
All in all, a Swiss Half Fare Card may be a little bit cheaper, but I don't think there's a great difference (more info on how to calculate is here
). Especially since the Swiss Card generally is cheaper to buy online from overseas than in Switzerland (but that advantage depends on your country of residence). Just fill out your country and travelers on the Swiss Card page
, and you'll see all prices and shipping detail for you specifically.
