    What benefit (if any) would come from redirecting moneysite.com to www.moneysite.com ??

    They rent luxury rental cars

    Any input would be appreciated. Because i'm about to put an end to that redirect.

    That is like the oldest question there is. Are you sure you know SEO?

    Why are you going to end the redirect? Be-careful if you don't know what you are doing.

    No problem, but as I said be-careful if you change it, you will need to 301 from the old to the new.

    There is virtually zero benefit in terms of SEO results. But it is important to use only www or non-www and 301 redirect the other one in order not to divide the link juices between the root and the subdomain www.
