I'm gonna go straight to the point. In google webmaster tools, under subscriber stats there is an option to submit your rss feed as a sitemap. I wanted to know if anybody else tried it, since I am having a hard time finding more information about that.
Did you benefit from it? Positively or negatively? After how much time?
From my point of view the more ways you help Google to discover your urls the better you will be. If your site is already interlinked and has alot of other sites linking to it you probably will not notice any significant benefit. If you are a new site that is trying to get Google to better index your urls, you will probably see a more noticeable benefit.
Keep in mind that simply submitting sitemaps & feeds to Google will not get you traffic overnight. It is just one step in a long journey to achieving rankings and traffic from Google. Good luck.

I generally submit RSS feeds in Google as RSS is more frequently updated than the sitemap (once a month) in my case. Moreover, in blog setups I definitely submit the RSS as this is the simplest way to keep the Google updated by new additions.
As Goodroi said this is just one of the steps in long journey to conquer the SERPs
