Purchasing the Swiss Half Fare Card with Family Card

Does anyone have a good recommended site to purchase the Swiss Half Fare Card with Family Card online?
i signed up for an account with SBB and looked to buy direct from them https://www.sbb.ch/ but I dont see an option that includes a Family Card with the purchase.
Does the Family Card automatically come with the purchase of a Half Fare Card?

Thanks!

It looks like I can request it if I purchase through raileurope.com. I never used them before, so confusing.

The only reason to buy ahead of time is if you would be arriving in Switzerland by train and wanted too get the discount on the Swiss portion of the arriving train. Otherwise, if arriving at an airport, I would just buy it when i got there.

We will be arriving into Spiez from Milan by train. So that’s why I’m thinking to get the Half Fare Cards and Family Card ahead of time.
