Bargained-for Exchange

Definition

To constitute a contract, an agreement between two parties must have been a bargained-for exchange. This occurs when a promise or performance (consideration) is provided from each side in exchange for a return promise or performance provided by the other side. Without a bargained-for exchange of consideration, there is no enforceable contract, but merely a gratuitous promise.
