Thanks for the prompt reply.
Few followup Questions, appreciate your responses.
1. We plan to travel the following POIs -
Basel, Interlaken, Mürren, Gimmelwald, Jungfrau, Lucerne, Chur.
And finally take Bernina express to Tirano.
I want to confirm this pass covers all of these trips except Jungfrau and Bernina express.
2. For Jungfrau, I want to confirm that I will get 25% discount with the pass.
3. For Bernina express, I want to confirm that I only need to pay for the reservation for seats (around 12chf per seat)
4. Please also let us know till when is the 2 for 1 offer gonna stay. ie, how late can I decide to buy this offer.

Standard procedure of STC, who will be shipping this special offer, is that you'd receive the passes 2-3 weeks before your departure date. "Departure date" is the first travel day of the pass you fill out while ordering it. In your case, you should receive the pass in time. To be 100% sure however, I would recommend to fill out the Notes field while ordering and explain when you need your pass. After placing your order, e-mail them and refer to your order to have your request confirmed. Here's their contact address.
You can indeed fill out any delivery address in Europe as well. This saves some shipping costs. The same procedure I just described applies. I know people who have requested to ship the passes to their camping site, for example. One more thing about this option: someone at the delivery address should know about the parcel as someone needs to sign upon receiving it.

I have read through this entire thread and have most of my questions answered. However, I still am not sure about the delivery dates of the tickets.
We will be leaving USA on May 6th. And we will be in Switzerland (Basel) only on May 14th.
1) Given that, how can we get our tickets shipped to USA before May 6th.
2) Or if we want to get it shipped to somewhere in Europe, say Paris, how can I ensure that I get them on the days that I am in Paris. What if the tickets arrive after I leave Paris.
3) Or can we pick up the tickets somewhere in Paris or Basel - like willcall tickets.
Fellow traveller, Julianne seemed to have talked to STC and got this issue sorted out. It would be really great to know how she got this sorted out. Would help folks like us who would want the tickets on hand before we arrive at Switzerland.
Appreciate your responses. Thanks
