What do you do when you get a better offer?

Is it OK to tell a potential employer that you have another offer?
Yes. You should definitely tell a company that you just received an offer from another employer. There’s a psychological payoff to telling a potential employer that you’ve already received another offer. It shows them you’re employable (exceedingly so)—and by the way, may not be available on the job market much longer.
