I'm guessing but I suspect you'll have to live with this mistake. By all means, email their support service (be polite, use a sensible excuse and promise to use them in the future). You might get lucky, but if not then I think you'll have to chalk it up to experience.
Also, I think most people here would agree that registering a domain name as part of a hosting package is a bad idea - there are many horror stories out there.

And believe or not, this was a first time I did it this way. I guess that's why I got hooked on it.
I still think that Free Domain should have an asterisk attached, together with the small print.

I have seen related issues on other forums where the domain was free for the first year only but people weren't expecting to pay on renewal. Read the small print and then read it again to make sure you missed nothing.

I'm guessing you are in the US, so not sure on the rules there, but do you not have something like the Distance Selling Regulations like we have in the UK
(essentially, if it is purchased in a non face-to-face way, you have a cooling off period to change your mind and get a full refund)

jennyj, the Distance Selling Regulations don't cover services that start immediately upon purchase.
So if you buy a domain name, membership of a dating site, gaming site etc, anything which works from the moment you purchase it really, you are not covered by Distance Selling Regulations.
You are of course covered by other consumer protection laws though.
In general domain names are non-refundable under any circumstances.
