How to negotiate between offers from two places?

Do I just bluntly tell the recruiter on the numbers from the other company and ask them to exceed or match?

    Don’t waste your time or theirs. If you like the 2nd offer, ask them directly if they can beat/match. No point in beating around the bush.

    Be straightforward about your other offer and ask them if they can match then you'll sign. Sometimes they'll come in with a better offer if they really want you.
