The classic one is to let them know that considering how competitive the market is right now, you have a better offer at another firm; if they really want you, they will bring their numbers up.

Yup, worked for me.

Any tips on how to negotiate?

Have more than one offer. Although it's in poor taste to directly try to leverage another offer to negotiate salary, I think it's important to have alternatives so that you can walk away if you have to. For example, I would never tell a potential employer, "I have an offer elsewhere for $XXX,XXX so I would like $XXX,XXX from you", but I would like to be able to walk away if I asked for $XXX,XXX and they were only willing to give me $XX,XXX.
