Now planning to go to India next month. Do you return all these I-94s while leaving US? or do you just return only the last issued I-94 (white) till Feb 10?
Think of a scenario that the airline staff submits (Not true in your case) your stapled I-94 and the extension I-94 separately and somebody is manually entering them into the system separately, it might just cause confusion. In my opinion its best to staple the extension I-94 to the existing I-94 on the passport so that anybody looking at them looks at them enters them together (If they enter the first I94 data it might just cause confusion in the sense that the original I94 is expired). In the ideal world the system should know that you have another valid unexpired I94 by virtue of your extension, but then there is a real world! So best to make things as simple as possible. If you received a third I94 I believe that you should staple that also to the other 2 and all of them should be with your passport. Your employer must file your I9 based o the latest I94, next time whenever you travel to your home country just handover all of them if they are all stapled to each other they will reach together. My 2 cents.
