I heard that as of February, winglets are an option on ALL boeing jetliners. Does anybody know what, if any, airlines are ordering wingles on their new jets?

Winglets will be an option for all of the 737NG aircraft only. They are currently developing kits for the 757, and 767, and older generations of 747's with a company called Aviation Partners. They are installing all of the sthrengthening components on the 737, so all are capable of an easy addition of the winglets. I know of Happag Lloyd, and South African Airlines ordering them for their 737's.

Are those winglets really helpful/useful in small jets (short range and low cruising altitude) like 737? Or they are merely some stylish things on a/cs?

They reduce fuel burn by 5-6 %. With fuel prices what they are today, that's a rather big difference.
