Upon resigning you may find yourself faced with a counter-offer.  At first blush a counter-offer may seem flattering, even ideal.  What could be better than to stay where you are comfortable with a better salary, title and/or bonus.  However, I usually counsel my clients to be wary of counteroffers.  While there is nothing wrong with considering a counter-offer, before you accept it you must ask yourself why you were resigning in the first place.  Sometimes more money is not always the most important part of the employment relationship.
