    I haven't done any redirecting before. Price of domain would be $20 plus 1 year hosting $35.

    The domain is in the same broad niche as my money site.

    It's PR 2 and has about 500 links from 10 domains. DA 19. Clean link profile.

    Is it worth the money to buy and 301 redirect to my money site?

    Yeah, I think it is. You can always sell links from it if it doesn't help you to rank, but I think it will help you, it's not too expensive to try.

    Agree with edvard. But asking - why wouldn't you 301 it from the registrar instead of bothering hosting it?

    No reason to spend money to host a 301'd domain. Either do it through free hosting or do it thru the registrar. And with DA19 that's not very high. Prob. not a waste of money, but not a "deal" either.
