Trosch offers to sell land for 200,000—I look at him and just walk out of the room (dangling offer/participate—offer is still in effect) Exception: if benefits are conferred upon the offeree and it’s clear that the offeror was not intending to make a gift and offerer accepts the benefits, offeror will be bound Ex. Deliver newspapers assuming the customer was paying the newspaper company—he continued to receive the papers—he tried to say that he though trosch was making a gift to him—the courts made the customer pay because it was an implied acceptance—he received a benefit from it Ex. Stealing cable—you received a benefit and knew TW cable was not making a gift to you Ex. Continuing to accept a magazine without a renewed subscription

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
