Why should you have been denied buying the item you wanted? Why should you have had to have thought to spend another $1? (And if you go down that road, you really would have been best off spending only a single point to make sure you'd minimize the chance of running out. And now personal wealth gives you an advantage in this game, because it makes it easier to select the optimal strategy.) You were denied it for one of two reasons: 1. You didn't have enough money when you bought the first stuff 2. You didn't plan ahead well enough. (Played the game poorly) These are both bad reasons for you not to be able to get a rabbit-exclusive item. A good reason would be that you hadn't yet done enough promotion to earn the privilege of buying the item.
