You think you were just giving Amazon an annual $99 tip for just being awesome?
Just contact customer service and ask if they could just give you the money back. I know that some might say that it's your own fault and they shouldn't have to refund you, but it was a simple mistake and you didn't actually use their prime services so I think it's fair. And trust me, they would refund you. Their customer service is really good and the employees understand these situations and don't see everything as black and white. I usually talk to them via chat. Plus, you having proof that you didn't use their prime service (I'm assuming) for 2 years would help.
Once I had a (prime) package that was delayed, but the tracking information still said it was suppose to arrive yesterday. I called to see what was up, just so I could know when I need to be home to get it, and they gave me an extra month of prime for free because it was delayed! It's always worth giving them a call. Even if they can't completely refund you, maybe they'll extend your current membership for free or something. Then you can take advantage of what you unknowingly paid for!
Surely after 2 years you'd notice a strange amount going out of your bank account every month?
Maybe it's because I'm poor, but how the hell do you not pay attention to your bill?
Honestly, the money I pay for Prime is easy to overlook... and I've done so. I generally have an idea of where my bill should be in a cycle, but I might miss a $99 charge once yearly. Hell, I just shelled out $500 for tax amendments, $800 for hotel, and $1400 for bar prep, so I might miss a $99 diff. I mean, I do run spot checks but I rarely track every dollar because I dont have to. I occasionally run fill audits though, just to keep credit cards honest.
