How To Spend It has been part of the Financial Times for more than 40 years, first as a single page in the Saturday edition of the newspaper, then as an expanded section and, finally, from 1994, as a large-format glossy magazine. Widely regarded as the benchmark for luxury lifestyle magazines, it is now distributed globally with the Financial Times 33 times a year.
Howtospendit.com was launched in 2009. It has many unique characteristics, including free access to the searchable content of more than 200 issues of the magazine, organised by subject rather than by print edition, plus additional web-only daily postings – blogs, columns, interviews and news – from our award-winning team of writers and editors. In September 2011, howtospendit.com launched a free iPad app (howtospendit.com/ipad). It now has over 290,000 downloads.
