For an AA elite, there's very little practical difference between the two -- many of the US Gold benefits (award ticketing fee waivers, *A status, or upgrade priority) don't apply to AA elites at this point anyway. And I am pretty sure AA is doing the bonus mile calculation, not US.

So far as I can tell, the only real difference you'd see would be with baggage -- technically a US Silver (=AA Gold) shouldn't get a priority tag, and only one bag would be free. So if you checked a bag, did it get priority tagged?
