On April 1, 2009 Get Rich Slowly was acquired by QuinStreet. The sale was originally made under the terms of a non-disclosure agreement, but other than the sale of Get Rich Slowly itself QuinStreet allowed J.D. Roth to maintain editorial independence in continuing to contribute to Get Rich Slowly.

On January 31, 2012 J.D. Roth published a blog post about the previous sale of the website as QuinStreet had openly publicized ownership of the website.[3]

On irregular occasions J.D. Roth has continued to contribute posts to the Get Rich Slowly blog.
