Hello mactoolsix! For your travel scheme, the Swiss Half Fare Card is cheaper than a 4 day Swiss Saver Pass. This is true for the first four days of your stay already, and on top of this you'd miss out on discounts during the last days in Lugano. The Swiss Half Fare Card offers a 50% discount on both the cable car to Monte San Salvatore and on the bus trip form Lugano to Menaggio (which is CHF 24.00). Bus tours around lake Como, which is in Italy, aren't included in Swiss railway passes. The map we link to at the Swiss Half Fare Card page, under the header 'Swiss Half Fare Card features', shows exactly which routes are included. Prices can be found in the Swiss timetable. The rail FAQ may be of help too.
I hope this helps you decide!
