Getting a refund from StubHub on concert tickets

As soon as I heard that Bono was injured, I expected the U2 concert tickets that I bought through StubHub in January to be like a lead weight around my wallet.

My credit card was charged for the concert tickets after the seller accepted my offer, and I didn't want StubHub hanging onto my money for a year while Bono recuperated. I waited a day to call the company, and using some of the consumer complaint tips from WalletPop and the New York Times, I got a full refund.
