I was in a similar situation with different schools and was upfront about things, ie " I love [blank] and really want to attend but due to my financial circumstances, aid has to play a role in my decision-making process." Both schools ended up offering more money in my case. Just be polite and the worst that can happen is they say that they've run out of funds. In my opinion judging from the email, they're basically giving you an opening.

I'm in a similar boat. One school tripled my initial offer and the other increased it a little and has now flat out said that my offer is the highest they've given out (about a 1/3 of tuition). School that tripled the offer has been insanely nice and have acknowledged my double deposits - I get weekly emails seeing if I have any questions, offering to put me in touch with professors, etc. I don't know what to do.
