2.0 out of 5 stars Too many irrelevant articles February 6, 2009
I've subscribed for a while but decided to cancel. There is just too much fluff in this magazine. It's supposed to be about Personal Finance, but you'll find articles about quilts (Grandma's Embroidered bedspread is a wildcard, Jan 2, 2009), health ("Help for dry, irritated winter skin", "It's not too late to guard against hearing loss", Jan 30, 2009), travel, food, nature, you name it. It actually reads more like the Q&A section of Reader's Digest than a Personal Finance magazine.

Also there have been several cases of publication errors, where an issue contains duplicate articles from the previous issue. This happened with the Jan 30, 2009 issue, which contains duplicate articles from Jan 23, 2009. Same thing happened in December last year.

The articles seem very light and short on substance. I had high hopes about this magazine because of the apparent similarities to the excellent magazine Opinionated, which is from the same publisher and has the same publication model. But Cash doesn't even come close.

2.0 out of 5 stars "Cash" had potential, but let me down. February 24, 2009
The first issue I received after subscribing was fairly good, and mostly on-topic. There was nothing revolutionary about it, but the variety of content and writing styles was nice to see. There was nothing you couldn't find on various financial blogs already (especially if you read a varied selection of small-to-medium financial blogs regularly), but I still found it a good value to have autodelivered on the Kindle. There were some articles that I wish were more in depth and technical, however based on the name and description that wasn't an expectation going in. Based on the first issue, I was planning on giving it 4 stars...

However, after a couple more issues, I became very disappointed. It seemed like the editors ran out of ideas for articles about money and finance due to the amount of completely unrelated articles. In the last issue before i cancelled, i read one short article total. The rest had no appeal at all to me. It took me less than five minutes start to finish to scan through the magazine and read the single semi-appealing article. I don't expect to enjoy every article in any magazine, but the problem here is the finance articles seemed to dry up, and some of the other articles seemed to be no different than something i could make up in 15 minutes to fill up a page.

I hope this changes in the future, but until then, I will be sticking with my normal financial blogs that I read. They are mostly independent, some focus on simple budgeting tips, others get into the details of complex investment strategies, but the main goal for me is a little of everything. Some topics are easy to read and absorb, and others really put your mind to work. But the end result is always learning without burning out ... *that* is what I was hoping "Cash" would turn out to be.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good value subscription December 2, 2009
This magazine is a good summary of relevant personal and practical financial issues. I have only received 2 issues so far, but the articles are just the right length and are useful. Sure, we've read some similar material elsewhere, but now, with this subscription, we can have it all on Kindle for a great price! I am not planning on renewing 2 of my other paper personal finance magazines and just sticking with CASH! It's convenient and has good information.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great articles for normal people August 23, 2011
I am just a normal person that does not have alot of "personal finance" experience. I find the articles contained in "Cash" to be very useful. If your subscribing to Forbes or something like that this may be a little bit to basic for you. If your just trying to pickup some useful information I would start here. I also find the travel and kids and money sections make me think about things I would not normally think about. Things like the difference in IRA types and collage saving plans, or ways to save money on vactions.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Information December 25, 2009
Great short articles with lots of useful information. Each issue has a variety of articles from investing, money management and even travel. Most are intersting and in many case have quite practical and useful information. Well worth the cost and time to scan thru the articles.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well worth the cost January 30, 2010
I really like this magazine. The title is probably misleading because there is a lot of non financial information in here as well. I am interested in most of the articles. I skip the others.

I like the "Cash" format. It's a compilation of published articles,some relating to traditional financial topics and some loosely based on how to utilize/save/spend the money that you may have.

Another reason I like the format is because I read a lot and can scan the material and pull what I want to read from it.

I rated 4 out of 5 stars because I just started subscribing to this magazine and have read some of the articles before in other publications.

Information contained in this product is standard information that is used as a base with other writers to build on. This author gives a simplistic view with no substance.

2.0 out of 5 stars Too many calls for government intervrtions.
A few good articles on finding a job. Almost nothing really all that helpful in the money Dept. Seemed like a lot of whining about things that aren't silver plattered.
