And I broke the outlet in my house the first time I plugged the adapter in

^^Good job. Apple recalls the adaptor because its subject to breakage....and what do you do instead, break the outlet with the faulty adaptor. LOL.
Dont think Apple will warranty that

i thought the law states that.... coupons have expiration date...not credits though...am i right?
for example: i had a credit with Amazon almost two years ago...finally used it last week to get the BlueAnt SuperTooth 3...and it went thru....btw, loving the blueant now...the Text To Speech feature is awesome.

Do you have to send in/ Return the old adapter?
I want to keep mine, I always lose it and it'd be nice to have an extra one.
