From our culture, to our services, to tips and tricks on ways to save – there’s some things we think you should know about Buckle.

We’re spilling it all and you’re definitely going to want to read this because we’re even busting a few shopping myths along the way.

Here’s ten things you don’t know but should know about Buckle:

1) Buckle is one of America’s best employers for women
In Forbes’ first-ever and current ranking of the Best Employers For Women, Buckle ranked 82 out of the 300 companies who made the list. Forbes’ ranking identified companies with the most gender diversity among their executive officers and board of directors. As well as identified companies who best supported women in areas important to them – such as pay equity, advancement opportunities, and family leave.

2) Our stores have huge career advancement opportunities

As a company that rewards performance and provides ongoing development for our teammates, when it comes to hiring for store management positions and store/sales management positions above the store manager, we only hire people from within the company.

That’s right, everyone from our CEO all the way down to store managers all started by working in a Buckle store. So when we say there’s growth opportunities, we really mean it. Want to hear more about these opportunities? Just watch this video where our teammates share why they love their job.

3) Buckle is the ultimate denim destination

Buckle carries denim from over 20 brands, but the options don’t end there! From extended sizing to the recently-introduced men’s Big & Tall sizing, to multiple options in fit, rise, and leg opening – there’s a lot of denim possibilities. And we haven’t even began to talk destructed denim vs. clean denim or light washes vs. dark washes, but we think you get the picture. Want to see all these denim options for yourself? A good place to start is our Women’s Denim Shop and Men’s Denim Shop.

4) Buckle sells jeans for under $40
Breaking the myth that all Buckle jeans are crazy expensive is KanCan and Reclaim. New women’s KanCan jeans start at just $39.95, and new men’s Reclaim jeans start at just $39.95 as well. Plus, brands like Sneak Peek and Daytrip offer jeans for under $50 and there’s always a huge selection of sale denim.

Get this – we have two Buckle Rewards programs and you can be part of both! This means double the points, double the rewards, and double the savings. The two rewards programs, Buckle Guest Loyalty and Buckle Card B-Rewards, both offer one point for every $1 spent, and for every 300 points earned in either program, you get a $10 reward to use on a future purchase.

  2. Buckle sets goals for their teammates so they have a way of being able to gauge their strengths, weaknesses, and opportunities to grow.

    Now if a guest is shopping for only a shirt, it is only showing great customer service to let them know what else the store has to offer, product and service wise.

  3. My daughter & I were in the store in Waterloo, IA looking for a shirt/sweater combination for her boyfriend. The associate working in the store was wearing exactly what she was looking for. He took off the sweater & began looking up the numbers in the computer to see if he could find one for her. He could not find the exact one but found one very similar & was on sale. What GREAT service 🙂 .
