Can you apply for the same credit card offer multiple times?

Let's say you apply for the British Airway card, then you get the 50K points, immediately redeem those points for tickets and then close the card. Can you apply for the same credit card again in the future to get the bonus offer again?

Main Card: Amex Platinum
For gas: Penfed Platinum Cash Rewards
For travel & dining: Chase Sapphire Preferred
