You have a few instances of them mentioning that the Federation doesn't use money, everything else from TOS to the TNG pilot to DS9 to Voyager to Enterprise have mentioned the use of money.

I think it fair to say the "no money" wasn't one of the "weird rules", whether Gene personally believe in the philosophy or not Trek under his watch didn't use it.
