It varies from issuer to issuer and from product to product. For example -
Chase usually will not offer a bonus on the same product twice, no matter how long it has been since you closed the card. However, if the card changes - Visa to MasterCard, different reward structure, etc. - it's considered a different product and you may get the bonus again.
Amex has the rules laid out in the terms and conditions of the application. It varies from card to card, although they recently announced they would be cracking down.
Citi's rules vary from product to product and constantly change. You used to be able to get unlimited AAdvantage cards, so long as you didn't apply for too many at once. before that, you were considered a new customer when you dropped out of their computer system after anywhere from 6-18 months. Now, they've tightened the rules. That may change again.
Barclays is liberal with some products and very conservative with others.
