Money was a monthly personal finance magazine, published by Meredith Corporation, that printed its last issue in June 2019. Its website, Money.com, continues.[3][4]

Its first issue was published in October 1972 by Time Inc.[3] Its articles cover the gamut of personal finance topics ranging from investing, saving, retirement and taxes to family finance issues like paying for college, credit, career and home improvement. It is well known for its annual list of "America's Best Places to Live."

The magazine, along with Fortune, was a partner with sister cable network CNN in CNNMoney.com, an arrangement made after the discontinuation of the CNNfn business news channel in 2004. In 2014, following the spin-off of Time Inc., the magazine's publisher, from CNN parent Time Warner, Money launched its own website, Money.com.[5]

The magazine was put up for sale after Meredith Corporation completed its acquisition of Time Inc. at the beginning of 2018. After failing to find a buyer, Meredith in April 2019 announced that it would cease Money's print publication, but would invest in the brand's digital component Money.com.[6] The printed magazine’s remaining 400,000 or so subscribers were transferred to Kiplinger's Personal Finance magazine.
