Purchased a discounted braided money tree. One of the branches was complete mush and rot is spreading to the others. Any advice on how to save it?

I keep trying to post pictures, but they don't appear?

Sometimes posting photos takes a bit of patience and a few minites of time. Try again. Wait.... patiently.... until they load. Sighing!

Get all rotted part out, including roots. To healthy wood. Treat with fungicide, or cinnamon on anything exposed.

It is not uncommon for one of the braided stems to die back while the others are fine. It is hard to know the reason, but it is not likely to be a fungus or any other disease. Pruning off the dead portions is a matter of aesthetics, not disease prevention.
