Would the consideration support and express promise?
Past consideration is not valid consideration (are limited exceptions where subsequent promise would be binding).
**Consideration must be given to the actual promise D makes.
**Consideration must be contemporaneous with the contract
Exceptions arise where there will be good consideration:
**If you promise to pay and agree to decide the terms later.
**Services performed at the request of the promisor, in circumstances that raise an implication that they are to be paid for.
**Subsequent promise may become binding in a minors contract.
Plaintiff had given no consideration for the subsequent promise, and thus it was not enforceable
