The trick with those situations is that even if they offer you better compensation, why did they wait to do it now? Also, if you stay, you'll also be looked at as the guy who can never be 100% "trusted" again.

For what it's worth, if you know that all this guy wants to do is to convince you to stay, you'd be well within the professional norm to politely decline because you've already made your mind up and want to be respectful of his time. Anyone that would get fired up at you for doing so would have burned said bridge anyhow.
