The aws s3 sync command is another useful one, especially after you've uploaded a directory (e.g. a website and made a few changes but don't need to upload all the files again.

Fun fact (the fun is debatable) - there's also the aws s3api CLI set of commands that allow you to configure all the settings on S3 that aren't part of the aws s3 commands.
