I just received a large ($7K) refund on a credit card from a trip I canceled. How do I turn it into cash?

The refund is on a card I don't use much and I'd rather not charge anything more to the card. My first thought was to PayPal my wife the money using the credit card, but we'd end up losing over $200 this way on fees.
The credit card company sends me checks, but I can't actually write these against the balance without them considering it a cash advance with all the ridiculous fees associated with that.
Is there any way I can get my money back with a minimum of expense?
