Posting to say yes, my parents also put their credit cards (the physical cards) in the freezer. They're in their 70's and are white.

I think it had to do with poor impulse control - putting it in ice physically breaks the current action/reminds the person "hey, the card is in here for a reason". A psychological quick fix instead of facing the problem. Back then, the card numbers weren't as accessible like they are today.
