Some people believe that online shopping saves time as well as money.
Which of the following two versions is closer in meaning to the above one? Thanks.

There is a typo in the last version, namely, the last word should be time instead of money.
After this proofreading, which is closer in meaning to the first one?
They are equal - there is no difference in content, merely in whether money or time is cited first.
Thanks, Anglika, for the reply.
But could you sense there is diverse emphasis on either money or time in each different version?
No - there is no difference in emphasis. Money and time are on equal basis.
