A promise to pay money, not otherwise due and owing, is a consideration,1 as a promise to advance capital to a firm;2 or a promise by principal to pay guarantor a certain percentage of profits;3 or a promise to pay costs not due and owing;4 or a promise by the creditor to give up his right to prosecute error.5 Accordingly, if the debt or a part thereof is paid before it is due,6 even if a discount is allowed for such payment before maturity,7 as where the holder of a note agrees to sell it to the maker before maturity for less than the face of the note,8 or if paid at a different place,9 such change gives to the creditor a right to which he was not already entitled, and constitutes a consideration.
