Now those arguments have been turned on their head by pro-EU supporters, who are now using the very arguments Better Together used to ask "are you 'Yes' yet?"
The biggest trigger for this shift is the United Kingdom's vote to leave the European Union, which only 38% of people in Scotland voted in favor of.
The Better Together campaign's official Twitter account told people that voting for independence was a sure fire way to ensure that Scotland left the EU. Now, with Scotland voting to remain in the EU by 62% many are suggesting that independence is the only way to ensure that Scotland can stay in the EU, and polls this week have seen a huge surge in support for independence.
Losing EU membership was one of the main scaremongering tactics used by the no campaign in 2014 and now look at us. Are you yes yet?— Morag (@MoragOs) June 24, 2016
AAA Credit Rating
In 2014, the Better Together campaign suggested that an independent Scotland would lose its AAA credit rating. Due to the UK's vote to leave the EU, ratings agencies S&P and Fitch Ratings have now downgraded the UK's rating to AA, and have warned that more downgrades could occur as EU negotiations take place.

Only way to guarantee AAA credit rating is to vote No
Scotland votes No
UK loses its AAA credit rating
The very same year S&P stated that an independent Scotland would likely receive a AAA rating, in a report in February 2014 the ratings agency said that Scotland's GDP even without oil revenues was similar to other credit-worthy nations.
"Even excluding North Sea output and calculating per capita GDP only by looking at onshore income, Scotland would qualify for our highest economic assessment."
The Financial Districts Mass Exodus
A key argument in 2014 was that financial institutions would be forced to move South of the border if Scotland voted to leave the UK. Now, however, some have suggested that an independent Scotland in the EU could provide an attractive home to major financial groups.

2014 Better Together
The increase in prices is a direct result in the drop in the value of the pound, and the loss of the AAA credit rating. Though in 2014 Tesco responded to the Better Together leaflet saying that it did not foresee a rise in costs as outlined on their election materials.
You Yes Yet?
Many have taken to Twitter to say that they voted 'No' in 2014, but would vote 'Yes' now.
I'm getting lots of e mails from people who are former No voters who say they now support Scottish independence. I will reply to everyone.— JOHN NICOLSON M.P. (@MrJohnNicolson) June 25, 2016

My English wife, previously a No, has now declared for Scottish independence and will be applying for citizenship once it is won.— Illiam Costain (@CostainMcCade) June 24, 2016
Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has said that a second independence referendum is "highly likely" though of course not everyone is really "yes yet."
