Amazon (AMZN +1.5%) is launching a $299/year same-day shipping tier for Amazon Prime, says Bloomberg's Brad Stone. The news follows a strings of remarks from Amazon in which it downplayed its same-day ambitions. eBay (EBAY +2.8%), by contrast, has been quite vocal about wanting to create a national same-day infrastructure; Google is also targeting this space. Also: As expected, Amazon is expanding its grocery delivery business to L.A.. AmazonFresh, available in Seattle since '07, will (for now) be available for free on a trial basis to Prime subs in several L.A. zip codes; its offerings include local gourmet items.
