Just found a fee (2 June) for US$12.99 - NZ$19.08 as monthly membership for Amazon Prime.

 

I don't remember signing up.

 

I made an Amazon purchase back in January...

 

Apparently I may have clicked on a 'trial' button which converts to full membership after 6 months.

 

I have ended membership now... If I haven't used the services since the fee started I will get a refund.

 

Here's hoping for a refund.

My first ever network connection was a 1MHz AM crystal(OA91) radio receiver.

I did the same, clicked on a trial membership, then forgot about it. A couple of days after being charged the US$12.99 I cancelled the membership and, in the options provided, specified that it was to end straight away rather than at the end of the monthly period. I received a pro-rata credit quite quickly.

That button got me too, luckily I noticed immediately and managed to cancel the largely useless product for anyone outside of the USA.

"This is a trial, 30/60/90 days. Won't start charging until then. Enjoy"

 

/me SET REMINDER TO CANCEL TRIAL, ON SMARTPHONE THAT I CARRY EVERY SINGLE DAY.

There's no place for logic and sensibility in this discussion!

It’s happened to me too, Amazon are very good at refunding quickly and without a fuss. Let them know and you’ll be fine.
