Welcome here! I agree that the Swiss Saver Pass and Youth Pass would be an ideal fit to your plans. There are indeed no extra promotions for US travelers currently, but buying online already saves you a fair amount compared to buying in Switzerland. All prices are on the right side of the Swiss Pass page
. I'm not aware of upcoming specials, but I can't guarantee that there won't be any during summer either. However, you shouldn't be waiting too long before deciding since the end of June is not that far away.
I wouldn't be too worried about doing a minimum amount of traveling to make your pass worth its money. Many trips will cost more than $30, especially when cable cars or other mountain transportaion is involved. From Luzern, you can visit Rigi, make a boat trip, visit Pilatus and Titlis, just to name a few. The first two would be free with your passes, the other ones 50% discounted. You can calculate exactly
how much you would save however.
I hope this helps!
