    convenient for

    Good evening, everyone

    Today I came across "...if that is convenient with you"

    I have always used "...if that is convenient for you" and, if this source is a reliable one, this thread confirms what I said.

    http://forum.wordreference.com/showt...0504&langid=14

    Could you please tell me if both for and with can be used?

    Thank you

    Re: convenient for

    I would not use "convenient with you".

    Re: convenient for

    You're right. For is better.
    I'm not a teacher. I speak American English. I've tutored writing at the University of Southern Maine and have done a good deal of copy editing and writing, occasionally for publication.
