There are no discounts on the motorway vignette. You may have read that the vignette and Swiss Half Fare Card are a good combination for drivers: myswissalps.com/ motorwayvignette.
You can pre purchase both products through www.swissrailways.com/ en. However I noticed you live in Australia and shipping might be expensive. Please check the site. If you prefer to save that money I'd recommend to order just the Swiss Half Fare Card through the same website. In that case they can e-mail it so you can print it at home. There are no shipping fees. Be sure to select "Online Ticket" as the shipping option. You can buy the vignette at the border. That will take a bit more time as opposed to already have it stuck to the windshield. Your German rental car may already have a Swiss motorway sticker on it. Not likely, but a previous renter could have purchased it.
There are virtually no tolls other than the vignette. That's all you need. It's not likely you would come across one of the few remote private roads that require an additional toll. If you do, you pay on the spot.
