As read from SBB website, there is a "Supersaver ticket" which can be used in combination with the Swiss Half Fare Card). However, as mentioned, such offers only available online. So if we would like to purchase such ticket for bigger discount, we need to buy in advance right? And if printed copy required or just showing the e-ticket to the staff who checked the tickets on train will be fine? More, sometimes i saw it is "Half Fare Travelcard 1/2/3 yrs" instead of "Half Fare Travelcard" during booking, both are just the same right?

Hi Leosiuming and welcome to MySwissAlps!

The Supersaver ticket needs to be bought in advance yes (sometimes it is still available the day before).
It is also only valid for that train at that time on that day. So be careful as you will have to buy another ticket if you miss it.
All other tickets are valid for any train on the day you buy it for so missing a train doesn't matter.

The "Half Fare Travelcard 1/2/3 yrs" is for locals and the "Swiss Half Fare Card" is for tourists like yourself. They are similar but not 100% identical, however for trips within Switzerland they provide the same discount.
