NEW YORK (CNN/Money) - Staples Inc., the biggest U.S. office supplies retailer, launched a new paperless process Sunday for claiming rebates, guaranteeing it will save holiday shoppers time, money and unnecessary frustration.

With the Staples Easy Rebates system, the retailer's in-store, catalog and online customers can submit rebate information directly online, eliminating the need for the lengthy mail-in rebate process.

Framingham, Mass.-based Staples said it decided to shift the rebate process online in response to customer feedback that shows shoppers are particularly annoyed and frustrated with the paper option, which typically includes filling out forms, cutting out product codes from boxes, mailing the stuff in and tracking rebates.

"As we head into the busy holiday shopping season, we wanted to be sure that our customers could purchase their holiday gifts via the retail store, Staples catalogue or Staples.com to enjoy the easiest, most trackable rebate experience around," Jim Sherlock, director of sales and merchandise at Staples, said in a statement.

According to company spokeswoman Karen O'Neil, online rebates will be available for over 80 percent of Staples products, including Hewlett Packard, Panasonic and Konica Minolta products.
