Does anyone know if there is a way to refresh old glowsticks or another use for them? I've heard about putting them in the freezer but I tried it once and it didn't work. Has anyone had any success with anything like this?

i think the freezer trick only works if you put it in the freezer while its still working. ive tried it before and works a bit, but nbot very well.
other than that...

No ideas--I've been throwing them away.  We go through lots of them as one daughter adores them, but I've shied away from re-using because of the glass inside.  I'll ponder it though---now that you suggest it there may be some neat re-use.

I stick 'em in the freezer... if you do that, you can crack them and they glow all over again!

I also hang them all over my bedroom, it looks really funky!

Maybe coat them with glow-in-the-dark paint and glue them around the base of a lamp for a little night light... by them being so close to the light the paint would charge, and if you need to turn the light back on, you can see where it is!

Well if they're the glow bracelets, you can just wear them like a regular bracelet (not very crafty, I know, but I always get people coming up to me asking if I'm wearing an old glow stick). If they're the thicker stick ones, you could string them together and hang that across a window. They might look cool with the sunlight shining through them.
