Money is an American brand and a personal finance website owned by Money Group  — and formerly a monthly magazine first published by Time Inc. (1972–2018) and later by Meredith Corporation (2018–2019). Its articles cover the gamut of personal finance topics ranging from credit cards, mortgages, insurance, banking and investing 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".[1]


The first issue of Money magazine was published in October 1972 by Time Inc.[2]

The magazine, along with Fortune, partnered with sister cable network CNN in CNNMoney.com after the discontinuation of the CNNfn business news channel in 2005. In 2014, following Time Inc.'s spin-off from its parent company Time Warner, which also owned CNN, Money launched its website, Money.com.[3]

After Meredith Corporation acquired Time Inc. at the beginning of 2018, Money was put up for sale. In April 2019, Meredith announced the discontinuation of Money's print publication, focusing instead on its digital platform, Money.com.[4] The last print issue was published in June 2019.[5]

In October 2019, Meredith Corporation sold the Money brand and website to Money Group, formerly known as Ad Practitioners LLC,[6] a Puerto Rico-based media and advertising company that operates ConsumersAdvocate.org.[7]

In 2023, Money added Best Cars[8] and Best Hospitals[9] to their roster of flagships, joining their existing Best Places to Live,[10] Best Places to Travel,[11] Best Colleges,[12] and Best Banks[13] annual franchises.
